I’m absolutely delighted to announce the arrival of a beautiful baby boy!¬†Hedda and Michiel welcomed their second child, a son, early this morning.

Introducing Phineas Joaquin.

What a wonderful start to a beautiful September day!

Big sister, Stella, was so excited to meet her new baby brother and couldn’t wait to give him a welcoming kiss when they arrived home. What a joy it was to be invited to share in those moments too and to see Stella’s reaction.

Here’s a couple more images from those first moments at home.

    Yay! So thrilled to get a glimpse of little Finn and now can’t wait for a squeeze next week. You did another amazing job, Natalie. I am thrilled that Hedda was able to have this experience with you by her bed side as I did. As you know, it was something I will never forget. Looking forward to seeing the images you captured of Stella and Finn meeting for the first time. Holly xxx
