I am so lucky these days. I keep getting bookings for my favourite subject, babies. It is just so lovely to be working with beautiful babies, who are relatively easy. They have no hang ups about their appearance. They generally sit still througout the session. And it doesn't often take much to get them to smile, or at least look content and thoughtful enough to make a beautiful portrait.
I even get to enjoy cuddles at the end of my sessions which has been wonderful. My baby is 9 years old now so it feels like an eternity since I held my own baby. Its hard to believe she was ever this small.
Possibly one of the best feelings in my line of work is being told that I've made their choice too difficult because there is too much to choose from. And to hear that it is just what they had hoped for is fantastic. It makes it even more worth while.
The following image was taken at the request of my clients. I love it when clients come in with ideas of their own. Sometimes I end up with ideas I wouldn't have thought of myself so it provides new inspiration. Amy's parents were perfect in that they provided me with both a new idea and the freedom to do what I thought was best for the rest of the shoot. I can't ask for anything more than that.
