and three became four...

Yes thats right...on the 25th March at 9:58am Ben and I welcomed our perfect little girl into the world. After labouring throughout the night on the couch watching my fairlady and dozing in between each non painful contraction, Ben woke to find me in full blown labour. It was a short 4 hours of 'actual' labour, a very intense and scary 4 hours I might add. And then there she was...all gooey and cute, my chubby little girl had finally arrived.
I always wanted my first born to be a boy...probably because I grew up with a big brother and always liked knowing that their was a big boy looking out for me. So I was delighted when I had my Zavia. He is a joy! But lets face it...Im a girly girl and also yearned to have a little doll to dress up and do girly things with. So you can imagine my utter happiness when Ben announced that the screaming little bundle of chunkiness was a little girl...and she was all mine! The perfect pidgeon pair as they say.
She is also the first Van Zutphen girl to be born in 32 years...the first of this generation.

About Me

My photo
I have been fascinated with the art of photography for as long as I can remember...I have dabbled in it for years but my 'obsession' didn't really take hold until the birth of my son, Zavia. I was so upset by the lack of good photos we had from his first few weeks of life that it has become my challenge ever since to take as many beautiful images of him as possible. I realised how important it was to capture all of those little moments that shoot past so quickly...and why stop at photographing Zavia when I obviously have a (I hate to use this word...but...) passion for photographing children and families. That's how 'Sprout Photography' was born. You can check out my website at
