Only 13 days young this newborn arrived at my studio with parents and all grandparents in tow, quite a crowd and a lot of love in the room, she is totally adored by everyone, and with good reason … what a gentle and contented baby she is, she would make even the hardest heart melt.
I’m always happy when my clients call me up to say they have had another baby and want to come back to do photos with the new baby. But I must admit that my heart sinks a little when they ask if they bring baby number one along as well … who is now 2 years old. You know what they say about the “terrible twos’! There’s a good reason for it!
Of course all parents want to get beautiful photos of their children together, but working with 2 year olds is really hard. And when you add a new born baby and all the safety issues that go with it, well it just gets harder. But how can I say no? It’s what every parent wants, so I just cross my fingers and hope for the best. And when it goes right, it goes really right!!! We worked hard to get this shot, but it was so worth it!
And I’ll start with a fun one, as Adelaide Baby Photos I photograph babies from while they are still a baby bump, when they are newborn, when they can sit up by themselves … usually around 6-8 months and again for their first birthday.
The cake smash photo shoot is a huge hit, the babies have a great time actually being encouraged to play with their food for change! Fun for me and fun for the parents, and usually all over in about 15 minutes.
This little guy was a bit suspicious of his cake at first, but after he’s had a taste of it he was totally into it!
