A baby fills a place in your heart that you never knew was empty.

I loved how relaxed everything was from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Catherine, you were amazing with Jessica and just took her crying/fussing/Feeding time in your stride and Dermot you made the whole photo session so relaxed! It felt like we were sitting in a living room enjoying a cuppa with friends. Thank you! Sarah
