I should have seen it coming but Albert has rather stolen the show lately with the Newborn Baby Photography session we had a couple of weeks ago. Its a natural progression, that photographers hired for a couples wedding end up being invited back for various updates and family events… such as pregnancies and babies. Both of which I have been asked to do by one of last years bride & grooms – Charlotte & Marc.
The images captured in this session proved to be yet another great learning curve for me on one level. Let me explain…. as a photographer I always try to visualise the image I want long before getting to the client. I run through several different set ups that can be tried and I have the anticipated ‘£’ shot in mind – “get that done and everything should click into place”.
Well thats usually a great way to operate and usually delivers great results. BUT…. a word of caution and note to self here ( young babies are a law to themselves and give very little ). Albert was the liveliest 3 week old I had ever met. The idylic images I had of him sleeping in all manner of poses were not to happen easily. He reluctantly offered up a couple which were gorgeous and appreciated.
The other shots will have to wait till the next session in three months time, coz like Arnie infamously said ” I’ll be back !!” This time with an open mind and knowing what will be will be. 🙂
