I can remember Zavias first shower like it was just yesterday. We had been to visit the health clinic for the usual weigh and check up from the health nurses and she suggested that Ben have a shower with Zavia that night to help with the father/son bonding. She explained that mums get alot of skin to skin contact with their newborns because of breast feeding and sometimes dads can feel left out because they dont get this same exposure. I was thrilled to find out that newborns are never too young for a nice shower. So that night when Ben came home I told him what the nurse had said and he jumped at the chance...they both loved it.
Last night was Vadas turn. She was a few days later than Zavia but she loved it just as much...she was alittle apprehensive at first and stayed tucked into daddys chest for quite a while but soon warmed up to the idea

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 Sproutphotography.com.au
