Alexander James

Little baby Alexander James arrived into the world fashionably late on 19th October, making his parents the most proud in the world. I had the pleasure of meeting the little guy on his 12th day. The first thing I noticed about him was his perfect black hair and little button nose, as we got to know each other and I photographed his sweet little features, I could see aspects of his mother’s face in his eyes. As the photos demonstrate his beautiful skin was flawless, like a doll!

I started off the session by gently cuddling and swaddling him to get him used to my voice. Then, like a true professional, my model drifted straight off to sleep. I tucked him into his little bed and popped the cutest little teddy bear ears on him.


Alexander’s beautiful Mam didn’t look like she gave birth only 12 days ago, she was so relaxed and her beautiful skin was glowing (I wonder where Alex got it from). I love the connection that these photos demonstrate, this little guy has definitely been born into  a loving family.

Mobile Photography

I usually do my sessions from my trusty home studio in Dundrum, as I like to rely on the perfect lighting conditions and have my tools of the trade on hand. But I rose to the challenge for this special guy and travelled to his home in Waterford for the photoshoot. I enjoyed putting together ideas and colour schemes which I thought would work, Alexander’s Mum and I have a mutual love for neutrals, so I was sure to pack beautiful earthy tones like cream, white and browns. The lovely wraps in use are from Big Crocodile Props and the blankets are from Roses and Ruffles
