UP, UP & AWAY

Bringing a newborn home is just the most precious moment, so many new mummy’s and daddy’s want to capture those first few days at home.  These darling images by Australian photographer Liesl Cheney show how baby Patrick settled into his new colourful nursery straight away; aren’t the hot air balloons such a perfect motif for a nursery’s walls?

I knew the tiny newborn stage would be fleeting and I wanted some great pictures of the baby to help me remember. We were lucky enough to have a relationship with Liesl, who had shot our wedding photos, and I knew that she would do a terrific job and make the shoot fun instead of stressful.  What I wanted most was to capture those tender moments at home, just as they were. 

What does being a mother mean to you? Having Patrick has brought me more joy – and more fun – than I knew existed.  I’m looking forward to beach holidays, reading him “big kid” books like Alice in Wonderland and Asterix books, and most of all getting to watch as his lovely personality unfolds.

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.
