The first year of any baby’s life is full of important milestones: first smiles, first foods, first steps – and of course, first Christmas. For baby Nino this milestone was even more special: just a few months before he underwent a very complicated open heart operation, and Kate and Luke invited me to capture them and their newborn baby just before that was due to happen.

A few months later, with the operation successful and the scary stuff well behind them, I joined their family again to capture Nino’s first Christmas.

I quizzed Kate and Luke before their photoshoot, finding out their Christmas traditions. Turned out, they love proudly wearing their Christmas jumpers while decorating their Christmas tree, and with Kate being a baker (check out her blog and a book) it was only natural that baking Christmas cookies was part of their day too – and that’s exactly what I photographed!

I leave you with my favourite photos from their session, and you can check out what Kate thought about the whole experience over on her blog.
