Dylan Robert James Brown - Surrey, United Kingdom

Today's post is all about a certain little man with the kind of giant grin that will warm your heart.

Mr Dylan Robert James Brown was born on the 1st of July 2014 at the Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey. He weighed 8lb 0oz and measured 55 cm tall.

This particular session was very special to me since Lisa Brown (Dylan’s mom) and I used to share a corridor when we started our training together at the Royal Military Academy of Sandhurst. For those who’ve been through Military Training, you would understand that this makes us family!

I asked Lisa what their first thought was when her and Ben first found out that they were having a baby. In her own words, it was:

   ‘That happened quicker than we expected!’ 

Lisa said that the first thing she thought when she saw Dylan for the first time, was that he looked like a ‘mini-me’! It's so wonderful to see both the peace and pride in her eyes when she talks of her newborn baby son.

Lisa is a very natural and relaxed mom and trusted me throughout the session. She followed the directions, which I sent out before the shoot, and this gorgeous little sleepy man was the result:

Congratulations to your new edition to the family Ben and Lisa. I can’t wait for us to do another shoot once Dylan is a little older.
