~It's not that your parents love their grandkids more. It's that their grandkids remind them of you as a child. And its like getting to love that version of you all over again ~ Tiktok 2024


Welcome to our newest littlest love, Elliot Michael Leo Wild.  Our ninth Grandson Elliot was named after his Grandad (Michael) and Great Grandfather (Leo). Yes, you may be thinking oh didn't that certain Grandad already have a Grandson named after him? Yes he did!  This is Grandson number two, imagine how swollen Grandads head is hahaha - no seriously isn't it awesome!

I didn't think he was ever going to come out.  Watching our youngest daughter through the first stage of labour wasn't easy, while she was being an absolute trooper the time had come for her to head to Waikato hospital by ambulance and I returned home crying, worried sick her and baby along with dad to be Josh.  I knew they would be in the best of care but still a mother worries.  Before long Josh was messaging letting us know they were both safe and sound with a photo of their new edition - more tears, thankful for our girl being safe but also for our new Grandson.



Elliot loved following the camera around which I really haven't had in previous newborn sessions. So we were lucky enough to get some awake and some sleepy photos.

Welcome to the family little man, you are truly loved.
