I'm photographing so many milestone sessions lately that it's scary.
It only feels like I was photographing them as newborns 5 minutes ago, but here they are, smiling, sitting, standing, and full of personality.
Harry's mum Liz got in touch earlier this year whilst pregnant with Harry. Without knowing it, her brother had seen she'd liked my Facebook Page and contacted me to buy her a gift voucher.
It worked out pretty perfectly!
I went and met the gorgeous Harry in March and took some photos of his chunky newborn rolls!
Now, 8 months later, it was time for my next visit.
These images are the perfect example of why baby pictures are so important. Just look at the difference 8 months makes! Using teddies like this is the perfect way to show how fast he's grown.
When I take photos around peoples houses, I love to think of the children looking back in 10 years and their parents telling them stories about things in the images.
Maybe the monkey mural was a huge pain to put on the wall, the bunting was made by a family member, the teddies he loved to play with. I love to think that my images will be full of memories for them.
Ah, back to my favourite place to photograph babies - a big bed!
Harry's mum is making a calendar of pictures of him for Christmas so we needed to tick a couple of months off of the list during his session. First - Halloween.
In typical 8 month old style, this little monster did NOT like staying still. All he needs to do is flash you his dimples and you automatically forgive him though!
To finish off his session we headed out to a local park in St. Albans.
Considering it was October, we completely lucked out with the weather and found ourselves in beautiful sunshine.
At this point we had to try and be more interesting than the tractor that was currently driving around the field (it was tricky!) but we managed to get some fun images with mum as well as some wintery images for his calendar.
Harry and his family are always really lovely to work with and I'm already looking forward to heading back to St. Albans for his 1 year session - let's face it, it'll be here before we know it!
