What does it feel like to really experience unconditional love? Sometimes while we try to teach our children all about love, our children teach us what love is all about. This is the way baby Anaïs’ parents felt after she was born. When we first saw today’s family session, we were instantly smitten with this little girl and the intimate, natural images captured by Roger Wu. Such beautiful light and the sweetest moments perfectly presented with genuine love! Join us as we share this lovely family story.
Journey of Parenthood
From the parents, Patrick & Sandrine: Parenthood was a new journey that we were excited to embark on but at the same time a bit scared too. When we first learned that we were expecting, it felt like our lives would never be the same! Will we have less couple time? Will we turn into sleepless zombies? Will we become slaves of a little human with no more social life?
The pregnancy was such a magical journey. We remember the first time we heard her heartbeat during a prenatal check up, the first kick in mommy’s belly and the first time we met her the day she was born.
The next chapter was even more magical. The day Anaïs was born, our lives did change but it changed for the best. Nothing could have prepared us to imagine how much love we felt for such a little being. We immediately felt in love, overwhelmed by joy and pride. She was beautiful and we couldn’t stop looking at her!
Challenges and Growth
Patrick & Sandrine: Of course there were those times with breastfeeding struggles, sleepless nights or poo explosions, but with just a little teethless grin from her, everything was worth it.
A year later, we have learned so much from her, from being just the two of us to being a family of three. She completes us, making our bond stronger. We are changed forever – we are parents to a beautiful little girl: ANAÏS.
From the photographer, Roger Wu: Simple and geniune were my vision for this photoshoot. I wanted to capture the intimacy between Anaïs and her parents through their natural interaction in everyday life. Natural light was used throughout the session. A simple photograph helps people to remember and to create an everlasting moment, and that’s what I’m trying to express through this photoshoot.
Thoughts from the photographer
Roger Wu: I had the honor to photograph Patrick & Sandrine’s wedding back in 2012, and two years later, Anaïs was born. It’s amazing to see how much this couple’s life grew and transformed because of Anaïs. During the photoshoot I was so touched to see the way Patrick held his baby daughter, with true love shining through his eyes. I wanted to capture this precious love completely and geniunely. I wish the warmth from Patrick & Sandrine’s love will forever surround baby Anaïs as she begins her beautiful journey of life.
