I first met Thomas and his family in April when I did his newborn session at their house in Hemel Hempstead when he was just a few days old.
As usual, time has gone ridiculously fast and a couple of weeks ago I headed back to photograph his next milestone session.
When I first walked into their house it was great to see a large framed print of the above image hanging in their dining room. They also have smaller prints dotted around the house, in their bedroom and his nursery. Much better than a USB stuck inside a drawer!
When ever I send emails to my clients letting them know what to expect from their session I also express my love for vests and nakedness!
There's nothing quite like the podge of a 6 month old and I dare you not to smile at that little naked bottom!!!
We got some really lovely family images at their last session so it was important to me to make sure I captured some more now that Thomas has grown up a little.
I love a relaxed look to these photos so I encourage cuddles and playtime while I wander around and capture the smiles.
He may have only just been mastering the art of sitting but he certainly looks like he's got in down in this image!
I love that you can a picture of him as a newborn with his mum and dad in the background.
Sessions with babies around 6 - 8 months are really just TONS of fun!
I encourage singing, dancing and just pure silliness to help get those beautiful natural grins. And no, you don't have to be self conscious because I will be singing and dancing right there with you!
