I met Jan, Madeleine’s lovely mum, through our equally lovely friend, Emma. I was lucky enough to attend Jan and Charlie’s wedding last year, as a guest, so I was thrilled when I found out they were expecting a tiny new arrival in May this year. Maddie arrived right on schedule, and fortunately the destination wedding I was supposed to have been shooting got postponed, so I was able to photograph this gorgeous little girl while she was still super new!
Maddie’s story started out like an episode of Grey’s Anatomy: Jan had gone in for surgery to have a cyst removed, and she was literally being wheeled down the corridor to the operating theatre when some hospital stuff came running after her, shouting, “Stop! She’s pregnant!” What a fun start to life!
Welcome to the world, Madeleine!
