Jamie is a very special little man who means so much to me. He was my very first Birthing Shoot Baby back in February 2012 and since then I have had the pleasure of photographing him in a Watch Me Grow Photoshoot every 3 months.
In every session he has been the most adorable baby, and although he is now over 9 months old, he hasn't changed a bit (as you will see from his collage at the bottom of this post). James is one of those lucky children that is so loved by his amazing Mum & Dad that he doesn't seem to have a care in the world. He has a personality that is so far beyond his actual age that it is rather scary!!!
I did not have a blog going when I began James' Progress Shoot, so I will include a few of the images from each of his photoshoots within this blog post instead.
James' Newborn Shoot
In March 2012 James came in for his Newborn Shoot. It was very clear from the moment they arrived in my studio that he was a very placid and happy baby.
His Mum & Dad (Catherine & Mike) had both settled into parenthood like it was nothing and are still to date the most amazing parents I have ever met.
James' 3 Month Progress Shoot
In June 2012 we did James' 3 Month Photoshoot. I was totally shocked to see how much he had grown!!!
It was at this photoshoot that I realised just how much thought Catherine was putting into Jamies photos. Not only did she arrive with a couple of different outfits for him to wear, she arrived with a WHOLE CAR full of props to use!! And when I say a whole car... I literally mean A Whole Car! She had brought everything from Vegetables to Washing Baskets to Sporting Equipment and all the bibs and bobs in between!!! I had so much fun doing this photoshoot that I was actually sad when it was time for them to leave :(
James 6 Month Progress Shoot
In September 2012 I got to do Jamies 6 Month photos and boy had he got big! He has such a funny little personality and was a total pleasure to photograph yet again!
And needless to say... Catherine had gone above and beyond with planning this session too! At this session we had fun with bubble wrap, blowing bubbles, mirrors, naked bums and totally adorable teddybear outfits.
Plus it was amazing weather to do some images outside in the field so we spent a bit of time outdoors with James putting him in flower fields with balloons and wheelbarrows, and even managed to get a stunning breast feeding shot that I totally love!!!
James' 9 Month Progress Shoot
1st Christmas Photos
In November 2012 James came to visit for his 9 Month photos. This was very special for me as it was my first photoshoot in my new studio.
We decided to do a joint Christmas and 9 Month shoot for this session so Catherine came with a car packed full of everything Christmas and some totally handsome little man outfits for his normal photos including the Soccer Ball, Beanie & Booties that he has been wearing in each and every session since his Newborn one, however there was one slight problem.... the beanie no longer fit - so teddy got to wear it this time :)
Jamie had got to one of my favourite stages of a baby - he was trying to walk. He was at the beautiful stage of leaning on furniture to hold himself up, and the total joy in his face at how clever he was, was totally adorable!
I was very sad to see James go yet again, he is a child that I could quite happily keep and claim as my own!!!
Watch Me Grow Collage
Birth - 9 Months Old
This is James' Watch Me Grow Collage to date. One more photoshoot to go, then it will be complete :)
See what I mean, although he has grown, he hasn't changed a bit!!! He is still the same Cheeky, Handsome and Intelligent looking little man!!!
I love you dearly Little Lambie, you have been such a pleasure to watch grow and I look forward to photographing you for the rest of your life... yes you heard correctly... I will haunt you with my camera FOREVER!!! :)
