OLIVIA ROSE

10 day old Olivia Rose de Lange is possibly the cutest thing you’ve ever seen.  Despite her tiny-ness she was determined to stay awake for most of her newborn shoot with Fiona Clair, showing off her frilly little pink bottoms and adorable smile.  Mum and dad are clearly absolutely smitten with their much wanted addition to their family, she’s such a peach!

Samantha’s story…

Being a mum means everything and more to me! I was told that I would not be able to have a baby naturally but thanks to faith I was healed and fell pregnant naturally, despite all odds. Being a mother will always be the greatest achievement in my life. We, as woman, are so incredibly blessed to experience this kind of love. There are just no words to describe it! It is one of life’s biggest blessings! And I will always be grateful to God for blessing me with this precious miracle. Being a mom changes the way you think about yourself, your family, your friends, and the world at large. It changes the way you look at life, the way you reflect. It is the most rewarding thing knowing you have a purpose besides yourself. It is the greatest responsibility. Life’s greatest honour.

I think it is so important to savour and appreciate every single day and moment with her. It has been an absolute delight to watch her grow. Watch how her little personality has developed over these short 8 months. She is a real little character. I look forward to getting to know her better, experiencing life’s ‘firsts’ again through her eyes but most importantly cultivating our relationship and watching her grow into an independent, confident and beautiful young woman.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
