“And though she be but little, she is fierce.” – Shakespeare
Most photographers won’t photograph a baby between the age of 2 weeks and 6 months. We have a set regime of photo shoots – newborn, sitter and cake smash.
Sometimes, parents don’t want newborn photos of their baby, or nature takes its own course and families find those first few weeks with a baby really difficult and would wince at the idea of leaving the house to sit in a studio for a few hours while a stranger takes their baby.
Some families would rather have professional photos of their babies taken when they can smile and are approaching a giggle. These memories are just as precious as to Mum and Dad as those elusive first 14 days when babies curl up like they are still in the womb and sleep through the whole shoot. This is the story of Fliss! Our beautiful 10 week old who visited the studio in Sandbach last Friday with her brother Seb for a portrait session.
Older babies can be so much fun! Fliss smiled the whole way through her session – until she fell asleep… haha.
Seb and Fliss were absolutely perfect models, we tried out a variety of props and got a bounty of smiles! Fliss is such an amazing, strong baby, she was awake and smiling for a long time! Her brother looked after her beautifully, constantly asking if she was ok and checking that she was enjoying herself.
We got some beautiful images that the family will enjoy forever. We’ve captured the first stages of Fliss’s legacy in our world!
