I was really looking forward to meeting this beautiful baby girl for this studio session. Having photographed her big brother when he was just a tiny newborn, I was excited to see him again as a toddler. I just love it when they come back with oodles of personality! Babies really do grow up so fast!
Miss M was a darling baby to photograph. With her beautiful smooth skin and minimal hair, she was an absolute doll.
Heres a little secret:
Big brother did not want to be near his new little sister. I was warned by her parents I may not be able to get one of them both together as they have tried themselves since her birth. They were right! On this day, he refused to have a photo taken with her but I could see it was really important to my clients so I just made it happen in post processing. I photographed him on his own with his parents tempting him with food on the beanbag and then composited an image of the two of them together taking one of Miss M’s solo bean bag shots. The sibling image in the galley below were two separate images 🙂
This is such a common scenario with toddlers and their new baby brothers or sisters that even if I cannot get them together during the actual photo session, I will still be able to give the parents that much wanted image of their two (or more) children together 🙂
What a little sweetheart this gorgeous girl was! I loved this session so much. I don’t normally do much in the way of props but I always welcome parents bringing in their own to make their babys session unique and special just for them.
Here are just a few of my favourite images (it was hard to choose by the way) from 13 month old Miss I’s General session. She ended up with a very full gallery due to being such a little superstar! As I myself find it hard to pick and choose favourites, I don’t expect my clients to do that hard task either, so all my packages are all inclusive of all edited images taken on the day minus misfires and duplicates. My clients can choose in their own time which images they love the most 🙂
It’s always exciting going back to photograph a family the second time around when second baby comes along. I love seeing my clients again and especially love seeing how much baby no 1 has grown, quite often into a very active toddler!
Meet the newest little addition Mister I, less than 2 weeks old and such a sweet baby he is!
Beautiful couple expecting their first baby in just a few weeks! These lovely first time parents to be couldn’t make up their mind whether they wanted a studio or location setting for their maternity session. So we just did both! 🙂
