I think the day I shot this family was even colder and greyer than the last family shoot I did! I first met this family a few years ago when baby number two was just a little fella. And that time it was a scorcher of a day! The shoot took quite some time, as I recall. The older boy really tested out all my skills with getting him to co-operate and have his photos taken. We spent a lot of time playing on the trampoline and in the cubby house! Still, that’s what makes us ’boutique’ photographers what we are, and different to your pixie photo booth set up in the shopping centre. We will spend some time just hanging out with you and your kids until everyone’s ready to play along, and we’ll put in the extra effort to try to capture you and your family how you are, and not offer you a mass produced product. Ah, sorry. I digress.
It was a lovely surprise to have a phone call a couple of weeks ago from L to say that she was just home from hospital with baby number three, and could I fit in a photo shoot? Actually, this little bub was a bit of a surprise for L and husband, too. They thought they were done with having babies with their two boys. And now they’re surrounded by pink, pink and more pink:
Acutally, I quite like that image in b&w:
It’s tiring work being a ballerina when you’re only two weeks old:
And finally asleep…
I hope you like this little sneak peek, L & M. I’ll be in touch soon to arrange a proofing session. Love, Jen.
