PHOTOGRAPHER Zoe Porter has shared these beautiful photos of Cirencester triplets, Emmy, Willoughby and Rafferty.

The adorable triplets were born prematurely 20 weeks ago, during lockdown, to proud mums Shelley Davis and her partner Sarah.

The triplets were born at just 29 weeks old, weighing 3.5, 2.14 and 2.10lbs, but the babies arrived home in Cirencester with Shelley and her partner Sarah after eight weeks in intensive care at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

They are now doing well and settled into life at home.

Shelley said that she and Sarah worked very hard to get the babies into a routine and that they now sleep from 10pm to 6am.

The family also love getting out and about and have recently enjoyed days out at Bourton on the Water, Birdland and Paint a Pot.

Although in her business, Natural Essence Photography, Zoe Porter specialises in newborn photography, she said but this was the first time she had had a shoot with newborn triplets.

"The babies were 15 weeks old when they came to my studio. The parents were over the moon that I was able to fit them in, as this photo shoot meant so much to them.

"The babies were wrapped beautifully to make them feel safe and secure and to help them go off to sleep, all the while following the current guidelines and restrictions.

"It's been a really difficult year for everyone, and especially for local businesses, but being able to work with these beautiful babies puts everything into perspective."
