New Year – Newborn

My first shoot of the new year was also pretty new – Baby A, at only 4 weeks old.

A departure from my primary business of weddings, the shoot was still great fun, although not without its own quirks and difficulties. With my own daughter now 7 years old, I’d forgotten that babies, especially at a month old, are not particularly good at following instructions, or doing what you want them to do. Baby A was no exception, and decided he wanted to spend an hour or so clinging to his mummy, and being somewhat grumpy if moved from her arms!

Eventually, with a full tummy and some coaxing, he allowed us to lay him down and make a few photos before giving up the fight and falling to sleep!
