The Curro Family


Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of taking some family photographs for my beautiful friend Carla and her husband Anthony, who have just welcomed a new baby boy. Little Darcy joins gorgeous big brother Chase... and me oh my... what a sweet little family of four they make!

Twelve-day-old Darcy certainly lived up to his namesake - he was a complete gentleman the entire morning, right up until the last couple of shots when he seemed to have had enough of my lens in his face. Fair enough, Mr. Darcy.

I've never really done anything like this before. I was a little nervous at first, but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed myself. I'm really pleased with how the photographs turned out, so I'd thought I'd share a few of my favourites here with you.

P.S - Cluckety cluck cluck!

  2. You did a beautiful job - just lovely. How old is big brother? He is adorable. Everyone looks besotted by the new little one. I wish we'd had someone lovely like you to capture such precious moments as these.
