"Hi Anna, how wonderful to meet you again!". Kate opens the door and looks absolutely fantastic. Nobody could have guessed she gave birth only four weeks ago. "Hi Kate, thank you! And you too! How are you? How have the boys reacted to having a baby sister? And what did you name her?" I am firing away questions – I am just so happy to see her and eager to get to know her family better. "Her name is Edith, though we call her Edie. Oliver has been very affectionate with her and Henry is very relaxed about it. They're adjusting well!" Kate says. "Oh, that's wonderful! Now, where is she? Can I meet her?".
Kate shows me upstairs where I also get to meet her husband. He is holding Edith and she is so precious – fast asleep and all curled up.
Baby cuddles & snuggles
We take a few photographs of her in her cot and a few photos on the bed. The bed is beautifully flooded with light from the large bedroom window. They all cuddle up together and my heart melts completely. Oliver and Henry jump in for some family snuggles and grandma pops her head in too. We all go upstairs and capture more family photographs in their huge attic/playroom/sitting room combination and everybody is so adorable and happy and upbeat. Edith sleeps through the majority of the photoshoot but that's ok – she is excused :-) She has so much growing to do.
