Back when Madeleine turned two we decided to do something a little out of the ordinary for us... we hired a photographer to take a few family photos. Other than at our wedding, we've never had a photo session like this and so we were a little apprehensive about how it would all go.
You know the whole thing about the difficulties of working with animals and children, well, as it turns out, Maddie (who is not unlike a labrador) LOVED our photographer! The only difficulty was that she just kept following Aurelija around the whole time, and so she actually struggled to get photos of Maddie actually with us!
We're saving our absolute favourite photos to send to the Grandparents on account of "we're sorry you don't get real hugs often but look how cute I am" but I thought it would be fun to share the beautiful photos Aurelija captured.
We went to our favourite place in Hampstead, Fenton House. This National Trust house is just around the corner from us and we spend almost every weekend (and Maddie and I the odd weekday) sprawled out on the grass having picnics and exploring the apple orchard, so we thought it would be the perfect place to capture this time in our lives.
A big thanks to Aurelija Sapkiene for capturing these sweet moments of our Hampstead lives with my two loves.
