Annabelle, nine weeks

Sarah was a bridesmaid at her best friend Alice's wedding, which I shot last year, and when Sarah and her husband Simon had Annabelle a few weeks back, Alice thoughtfully gave them a gift voucher for a photoshoot and some prints. Simon's (very, very proud) parents were out from England so it was the perfect opportunity to get photos of the three generations together at Sarah and Simon's home in Ngaio. Annabelle slept and slept and slept and then cooed and kicked her way through the shoot: the only dodgy moment was when I tried to wedge her in the corner of the green couch, but it was worth it for that priceless expression!
