After having Jaxon I remember coming home and looking back over all of the many photos I had taken of him on my phone and I thought to myself how I wish I had taken in my camera to capture some of Jaxon’s time on the unit when he was so tiny. When you are there on the neonatal unit, taking photos is the last thing on your mind really and you almost don’t want to have lots of photos of such a challenging time in your life however it’s not until you arrive back home that you think how nice it would have been to of had some precious moments of you and your baby in those early days to allow you to look back on just how tiny, perfect and amazing they were.
This weekend we had a little party at Sandown Play Cafe in Esher, Surrey to celebrate Jaxon’s 2nd birthday. He will be officially 2 on Wednesday and I can’t believe it has been 2 years since we welcomed (rather unexpectedly) our tiny baby boy into the world. Jaxon was 12 weeks early and weighed 2lb 2oz, he spent a very long 10 weeks at Kingston neonatal unit with a wonderful team of doctors and nurses caring for him.
I had the pleasure of meeting this lovely family in the neonatal unit in Kingston Hospital. They then invited me to their home in Worcester Park to capture them as a new family at home. We were able to take some amazing photos, my favourites in particular where the close ups of the tiny hands and feet.
