If you have a rummage back through my blog posts, you’ll see this family appear a few times. I’ve been photographing them since Mom and Dad got engaged, so it was great to see them again for Gabriel’s 8 month shoot.
Gabriel took his photo shoot quite seriously to start with and then warmed up with some entertaining faces and general silliness which kept us all laughing.
8 month old babies are one of my favourite subjects to shoot, they can sit securely, are generally very happy but can’t run off anywhere, the perfect combination of factors for a great photo shoot :).
Gabriel could, however, roll very well so kept me busy as he wriggled around on the bed in between shots. I had to keep moving to make sure the lighting was correct, so this was an energetic shoot to say the least.
Gabriel peed and pooped on my blankets during his newborn shoot (not the first or the last baby to do this, it’s an occupational hazard), but thankfully my white blanket was unscathed after this instalment of the photo journey.
All these images were shot on location using natural light at the family’s home.
I work on location throughout South Africa capturing babies, families and pets, so if you’d like more information about shoot packages, please contact me.
