Red London Bus, bubbles, a rocking horse, a Steiff bear … and Ben {sneak peek}

How times flies. It truly does. It really doesn’t seem that long since I was photographing Ben’s parents’ wedding at Salmestone Grange. And since I met Ben for the first time when he was only eleven days old. And since he was six months … and flying. And now, to return when Ben is just over one year old … I think I may have mentioned that I love my job, I love the connections that I make and the welcome that I receive into people’s lives.

And Ben …

Ben at one year

He was so diverted with his toys that it was lovely to capture him so intensely concentrating … But not bubbles, nor laughing, nor granddad holding a reflector, not nanny cajoling, not daddy dancing like a crazy thing behind me could get Ben to really break into the beautiful, wide smiles that his mummy and daddy know that he has …

But when we all meet up again on the beach in a few months, when the weather is warmer and Ben is walking … there will be smiles. And ice cream. And happy, happy memories of a fun engagement photoshoot on the beach Good times xx

I like flying … Ben’s seven month photoshoot {sneak peek}

Oh my goodness … how big Ben has grown! Since his first photoshoot at 11 days old, when he slept pretty much all the way through, he has changed so much … his gorgeous and engaging smile … his love of flying (on the comfort of the dining room table, I must add) and his fabulous laugh … I love my job so much! Here’s a sneak peek and I hope he makes you grin too …

Of course, we had to include his Steiff bear – if you look at his newborn shoot, it gives you an idea of how much bigger he is now! And those giggles …

Mummy and daddy had only recently moved house and I must say that the light was just perfect for Ben’s photoshoot. And I love the hint of reflection in the top of the table … all in all, pretty perfect!

The full online gallery will be up soon and I wonder how much Ben will have changed when I return for his one year photoshoot! Hugs xx
