Fletcher's At-Home Mini Newborn Session | Barnstaple, North Devon | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Fletchers at-home newborn session is still up there as one of my very favourites. Laura and Lee’s home was full of beautiful natural light, which poured through the windows of their little house in North Devon and bounced off of all of the neutral-toned decor filled within. Honestly it was a photographer’s dream… and don’t get me started on the adorable little monogram onesie Fletcher was sporting!

Baby Beau | Crow Point, North Devon Family Session | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

So Beau’s mum, Kelly, and I actually go way back. She is the twin sister of one of my very best school friends, the first girl to befriend me when I moved to Devon as the shy 14 year old I was. When she fell pregnant and asked me to do Beau’s baby photos, I was so excited, if not a little nervous, because the last time I properly saw Kelly was probably in 2012! I also love that she and Jordan waited until Beau was just a little older, rather than being a newborn before she booked to do these photos, because he had so many hilarious expressions to show us, and had perfected his grumpy face almost perfectly for the photos!

Cosy Woodland Extended Family Session | The Dow's | Grace Elizabeth, Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer, Colchester, Essex

After heading to take a few photos with Joe and Emily’s grandmother at her home, we all drove a short distance to Donyland Woods on a chilly but sunny November morning, somewhere that Joe and Emily spent many hours exploring as kids with their parents and grandparents. I am always happy to suggest photo locations but more often than not, it’s lovely when you take the lead because it lets us make memories in a place which is probably already packed full to the brim of memories from years gone past!

Cooper's Mersea Island Beach Newborn Session | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Amy was quite heavily pregnant at the time, and as the couple didn't want to do an engagement session, I offered to do newborn photographs instead! You could really tell that their family dynamic was so important to them, especially with son Hudson (who was super excited about having a little sibling!), so I was more than happy to do this instead!

The Ciantar's Family Session at Crow Point, North Devon | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

I loved photographing these guys, and it was the perfect place to let off some steam for their eldest son and their pup too! It was windy but warm, one of those stormy summer evenings, and it was such a blast getting to know them and exploring the area more than I had done before!

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.

There is actually a bit of a funny story towards me finding out Lauren was pregnant again with Tommy...

Flossie's Family Session at Arger Fen, Suffolk | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Katie and Jono had the perfect little girl, Flossie, and what a cutie she is (you'll get to see her in a minute!) But sadly, her first few months on the planet were met with illness, meaning that the family didn't have a chance to do those family portraits they envisioned in the early days. Thankfully, Flossie soon became a lot better, so we headed to the beautiful Arger Fen on the Essex and Suffolk border for their family photographs when she turned around six months old.
