Welcome to the world ‘Mr Mouse’
Now you’d be fooled into thinking this is Caleb’s first photoshoot right? Well, I’ve actually had the honour of photographing Caleb 3 times (technically 4 if you count the Maternity shoot) and he is only 3 weeks old as I type!
Caleb’s mummy is one of my bestest friends (and a fellow photographer) hence why the wee one has been harassed so much by my lens. I’ve made a promise to Caleb to take a back seat with my camera for a while and conduct in more snuggling…not for long though :)
Also joining us for some cheeky grins was Caleb’s big sister Lola, who at 2 years old, is only a wee one herself. She has taken to the role of being a big sister really well and loves kissing and cuddling her baby brother.
Be prepared to see a lot more of these two little tinkers!
Here is the adorable Ava Rose who I had the absolute pleasure of photographing on Saturday at 9 days new.
One thing I noticed as soon as I tumbled into Adam and Jenny’s house with my abundance of kit (I’m like a one man band with all the throws, props, cameras and beanbag) was how chilled out they were. I already knew they were a barrel of laughs as I photographed their wedding last year, but to say they were new parents, giving up one of their newborn baby’s rare naps whilst I take over their kitchen, they were a dream. Just like little Ava.
Jenny even let me get my baby fix and rock Ava to sleep. I’m not the baby whisperer either. It doesn’t always work. However, with Ava’s full tummy, the heating on full blast, lullabies on repeat and my rocking we struck gold. Ava slept through 3 prop changes until she decided that being a model was no fun and that milk was where the party was at! :)
I’m still learning what works and what doesn’t with newborn photography and love how different and challenging each shoot is. I use natural light, my trusty Nikon D300 and mostly my fixed 50mm lens.
