I have been so spoilt with the little cherubs I have met recently, none more so than little 3 month old Georgie.
Lovely auburn hair, blue eyes and little rose bud mouth.
Sweet sweet sweet!
I get a little nervous before a photo shoot, not having met the little ones before hand, to them all of a sudden this strange woman is picking them up and putting them into different positions, there was a little bit of a concerned look on Georgie's face to start with but she came right and let me put her in a few really cute positions.
It takes time, we can't rush them into something they don't want to do, I don't have a set plan of poses or what to put them in, I just go with the flow and see what suits mum and baby. I have heaps f props but there maybe some family heirloom, piece of clothing, or anything mum would like to add to the mix, I am very open to anything, it is for you and your family after all.
I also don't really work to a strict timeline - when you book an appointment I don't expect you to turn up exactly on time, you have a baby that sleeps to their own clock, then to feed, change and clothe, pack a bag big enough to stay a few nights!
I do tend to put aside the whole afternoon for you, the photos themselves are probably between 1 - 2 hours, but in between, mum can feed baby, change them, give them some reassuring cuddles. If its rushed, mum and baby wont be relaxed, and I can only imagine photographing an un-relaxed baby would be so hard, I have been spoilt so far.......
Well Little Georgie, thank you for an enjoyable afternoon, I know I'm going to meet you again soon, you'll be sitting up by then and have the hugest smiles!
