Here I’m going to share some lovely pictures of baby Millie from when she was about 8 months old. Whereas with newborn photography you might spend most of the time trying to get baby to sleep, with a baby of this age there is a lot more interaction – in this case a parent or grandparent standing behind me making funny noises or waving favourite toys:-)
Each stage has its different challenges for the photographer, but I do enjoy photographing a baby of this age because you are starting to get a bit more expression, and can see a bit of personality starting to emerge. The session is also a bit more intense, as there is very little downtime for changes, feeding or settling, and a lot more movement, which can be fun.
These images are from last spring, and I recently had a follow-up session with Millie, who is of course now walking and starting to talk. I’ll share those pictures soon, and see how she is changing:-)
