A Special Gift...



When Leo was born we were gifted with a very special present. A present that would allow us to capture those special moments of Leo's ever changing face and development. 

A baby photo package that consisted of 3 separate photo shoots. 

One photo session for those very early days, where Leo was nothing but a little bundle in my arms. A little baby who lived for his next bottle of milk with his big Blue eyes and tiny little hands. He didn't wriggle, he just lay there and slept for the most part.

The next shoot was for a bit further along the line, when the changes in him were so apparent. We waited until February 2012 when Leo had just started crawling, he was 7 months old. Leo was sitting un-aided and his personality was there for the world to see, smiling at everyone around him. He was just discovering that he could pull himself up to standing but not very balanced quite yet.

I waited to book our final session as I wanted the final pictures to be just after Leo started walking. Then we really would have captured each and every stage. So when Leo began walking in July I got the shoot booked in for the beginning of August. Leo toddled about everywhere and put on his stubborn head, he was tired and he wasn't in the mood. However despite this we got some lovely shots.



We have just received the photos back from our third and final photo shoot. Now we have to pick a photo from each session to have framed, the choice is hard as there are so many photos from each session that I love. 

These photos below show so much change in my little man. Change that has come around so very quickly. He is no longer the little baby that sits still and contented in my arms, and he is no longer crawling around on all fours. Leo now walks and attempts a run, and he does not like to be sat still any longer than he has to be. 

Did you have any family portraits done when your little ones were younger?
