Today we are featuring this gorgeous newborn shoot submitted by Kate van Onselen. We asked little Frankie’s mom, Bonnie, to tell us a bit more about the session with her little bundle of joy.
“Our little Frankie Ruth Long entered into this world on a beautiful, sunny winters afternoon. Frankie was born at 35 weeks, but despite her early arrival, she was perfect in every way. Her second name, Ruth, is very special to both parents – being named in memory of my Mom, who also shared the second name Ruth, and my husbands Gran, Ruth Toft.
Kate took these beautiful photographs when Frankie was just over 2 weeks old, so we were in the midst of sleepless nights and new-parent exhaustion, but with Kate’s calming presence and her confidence in handling our teeny tiny newborn, the shoot was a breeze.
Those first few weeks of parenthood were tougher than I imagined, but kissing those sweet squidgy cheeks, having her fall asleep on my chest and taking in her delicious baby smell, made every moment worthwhile. Kate managed to capture these precious moments so beautifully.”
Enjoy these beautiful images!
