River, 10 days

His name is as adorable as him!

River was a such a teeny tiny little newborn weighing in at 3.1kg and 50.5 cm long. He was sensitive to touch, liked to let off lots of smells and absolutely had his parents smitten in every single way!

Their family portraits were my favourite! There is clearly a lot of love in this little family, and it shone through in each image captured during his newborn session.

Thank you Lyane & Richard for choosing me to document this special moment
