Last Friday morning I was in for a treat when my favourite little flirt came back into the studio for the 3rd session of his year-long Grow with Me package. You may remember Alex from his 4-month-old session. Batting his long lashes and looking at me with those big blue eyes I was putty in his hands!
What a Difference?
I make a point at each Grow with Me session to use the same prop that I used at their newborn session as I find it really helps show how much they grow and change in the first year. Boy oh boy has Alex changed. He looked so tiny as a newborn in my dark brown wicker basket and this time he only just squeezed into it!
Sitting down on the job
At 8 months Alex is sitting up by himself. He is bubbly and happy and as long as he can see where mum is at all times he is confident in front of the camera.
Look at that face and those oh so kissable cheeks! I was totally in love with his romper suit that was covered in woodland animals. I’ve checked and they don’t sell them in adult sizes 🙁
A sitting child means I have lots more options to vary the setup and I got to use one of my favourite props, the wooden stool my dad made for me.
Mum was literally just off to the right in case Alex had a wobble but he totally nailed it. What a pro!
Big chair, little person
I like to play with scale as well at these sessions. By putting Alex in a big chair he looks tiny.
Good for the parents when they worry about how fast time is flying and how big they are getting!
As ever my time with adorable Alex was over too quickly. I can’t wait for his first birthday smash and splash session!
