Family – Baby Leo | Lonehill

Love is

I first met Baby Leo at The Bub Hub class and I instantly fell in love with this little guy. He was such a cutie – always smiling and ever so curious. When Casey asked me to come and capture their special family I was honoured. They not only had a family shoot but they had a very intimate ceremony for Leo with close family and friends in their garden. In this Naming Ceremony each and every person there read a promise to Leo that was incredibly personal. Grandpa promised to teach him the rules of all the different sports, while Aunty promised to be at every Sports day he had and Granny promised to teach him about the family history. It was incredibly personal and special and made me fairly teary listening to this close family promise to love and cherish this little bundle in every way possible.

The decor was very appropriate for a Baby Leo – the Lion King (the cake topper even sang the song 🙂 )
Thank you for allowing me to be apart and capture such a special moment with you all.
