Something pretty special happened at Martha's newborn photoshoot in Durham

Photography for little people by Melanie. Newborn photography and Family photo shoots across County Durham and Sunderland.

Gorgeous little Martha came in for her first ever photo session. Newborn baby photos are so important when little ones are so tiny because they change so quickly. Everyone will say this to you, but it’s true!

Something pretty special happened at Martha's photo shoot. As I was chatting to her parents, we were talking about Covid 19 and how it has affected our families. One set of Martha's grandparents had not been able to hold her or see her in person, only through a window (due to Covid and shielding).

This absolutely broke my heart. As I was settling Martha, I suggested we face time these amazing grandparents. I have never offered this before or even thought of it before now.

We called them and Martha’s dad passed the phone to me (as we were distancing in the studio), I hadn't thought that as I point the phone at Martha I would see their faces! They cried, I cried, Martha’s parents cried. What an emotional and amazing moment, one I will NEVER forget.

“Lovely surprise having the photographer face time us during the photo shoot of our granddaughter. It made us feel as if we were right there with them. Brilliant idea, would recommend this photographer to anyone.”

Would I offer this again? Not sure I could cope emotionally, but maybe! This has to be one of the most touching and memorable moments in the studio for me.
