It has been such an honour to photograph this little guy on his journey to 1. This was his third supermodel performace, his other sessions can be viewed here and here. I love the memories that I have created for him and his Parents as they look back on their own journey of parenthood and that eventful first year. The year that parents learn that no matter how much they want to be or pretend to be, another little person is completely in control! These two are amazing parents. Completely in love with this amazing child and are so good at availing him to all nurturing experiences, including the important texture exploration of the outdoors. I love this first image, it tells the story of an inquisitive intelligent baby taking such delight in simplicity as he learns from his environment. Each and every time I capture these essential baby delevelopments I know I have done my job in documenting the true essence of a child. The one thing I strive for most in my photography.
I had such a hard time choosing another image that tells the story of this family, there are so many that celebrate the loving way Mum, Dad and Baby C all interact with each other. I finally decided on this one as I love the way baby C is the star of the show (again showing his inqusitive advernturous nature) while his adoring parents are in the background playing a supporting role as they watch and celebrate their Son conquoring the world.
A and E, thank you for allowing me to document your gorgeous Son’s first year through my images. I will be in touch as soon as I can when your full gallery is ready.
