Tommy's Family Session on a North Devon Farm | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer
Allow me to introduce you to two of my lovely and oldest friends, Lauren and Dylan. Lauren, Dylan and I go way back, in fact, we all went to school together when I lived in Devon! Since then, the two have fallen in love, are currently engaged to be married, and have two absolutely beautiful little ones, Kaylah and Tommy.
Lauren asked me if I could come along and photograph her, Dylan, and her little ones last summer on her farm at home. Although we didn't get to do newborn photos (as there are 300 miles between us!) and I couldn't get down to Devon immediately, I did manage to see them finally to do Tommy's post-tiny-newborn photos when he was around three weeks old. What a little bundle of joy he is!
There is actually a bit of a funny story towards me finding out Lauren was pregnant again with Tommy... I had gone down to Devon a little while ago, and managed to catch up with them both along with my boyfriend, as I try to do every time I visit Devon (there are never enough days in a week!) We decided to head to the local pub for the evening. Since I am literally always designated driver, I opted for one of those Belvoir elderflower drinks, and, Lauren opted for the same. Thinking nothing of it, we chatted for a while, until one of their (very drunken!) friends offered to buy a round of drinks. We both opted again for another elderflower drink, and he made a comment along the lines of 'Oooh, elderflower - you'll be on that for the next nine months eh?!' Lauren and Dylan went silent, my boyfriend and I immediately looked at each other, and then he cautiously said 'Okay, I'm going to have to ask you... Are you pregnant again?' Followed by a few giggles, they both said yes, and that was that! Fast forward lots of elderflower drinks later, and nine months of growing, plus three weeks earth-side, and finally I got to meet little Thomas (Tommy to his friends!)
So, here you go, my beautiful friends Lauren, Dylan, Kaylah and Tommy - I hope you love their session as much as I do! xo
