I had done the newborn baby photo shoot for this young girl a few months ago. She was now eight months old and the family wanted to capture some more photos of her and the family as she was growing up. This is such a great age to photograph babies as they sit up well and engage with people and things around them, often with big smiles. Being close to Christmas, they also wanted to get some Christmassy photos too.
We began with a white background with gold Christmas baubles and glittery reindeer. This baby girl was dressed in a cream and white outfit to match. She loved playing with the shiny, Christmas props.
We then set up a very different Christmas background, with dark wood floor and fairy lights... and not forgetting the Santa hat!
We then focussed on some family photos, both more formal portraits in their sitting room and also some with the parents playing with their baby girl.
We then got some photos of this baby girl by herself - without the Christmas scenes.
