Introducing Frankie Jack

Introducing you to Frankie Jack

Born on Saturday the 16th of August 2014 at 5.25 am after 52 hours of labour, my little Frankie Jack at 6lb 2oz arrived in this world. Debbie Vowles was my midwife and was just superb. They really are stretched to capacity on the NHS.


Unfortunately after picking up an infection as my waters broke 36 hours before he was born, he was given antibiotics and we stayed in hospital for just under a week. The Neo Natal Nurses worked their magic, brilliantly I may add, so that my wee man recovered and we could go home.


The care for Frankie Jack was second to none by the NHS, I could not have asked for better. As for new mums in hospital…well…that’s another story and blog.


Whilst pregnant I found a fantastic photographer called Kirstine Doherty. I have always been a fan of the amazing photographer Anne Geddes and her quirky take on new born photos. I soon learnt that to create this look your treasure needs to be photographed before they are 10 days old, as this is the time you can carefully mold them in to the shape you wish to shoot the most magical shots ever.


With Kirstine you receive a package of maternity shots with the newborn, hence the pregnancy photo shoot, whilst feeling like a whale, that I have already blogged about.


These photos were taken a week after Frankie Jack was born. With white noise playing from Kirstines phone and the room lovely and warm, she went to work cradling and rocking Frankie Jack. This women is like an angel and can handle babies like I have never seen before. A mum of three herself and one on the way, she has a touch I can only describe as magic.


Calm and softly spoken we loved every minute of it and yes I did cry…you couldn’t except anything less from me.


As they are photographed in their little birthday suits, you can imagine what I am about to say next. Yes, Frankie Jack number one and two’d all over Kirstine, whilst Gary and I laughed and she didn’t even bat an eyelid.

An unbelievable experience and a fabulous reminder forever of how my little monkey was at 7 days old. This is my favorite picture, saving you the best till last…oh and another tear in my eye for the love of my life, Master Frankie Jack.
