This sweet baby boy is the nephew of Jacqueline and Adam, whose wedding I photographed earlier this year. We had temporarily booked a session based on momma’s due date, but she had a feeling this little guy was going to be early, and she was right! There is always flexibility in my schedule for early or late babies, so when he was just four days old, Ewan and big brother Kallum came to the studio. Kallum wasn’t exactly in the mood to model for us, but we did manage to sneak a few family photos in before Granny came to pick him up, so we could concentrate on images of the newest bundle of joy.
At just 6 days old, you’d think this little one would be doing nothing but sleeping. Well, she certainly proved us wrong, as she did everything except sleep! None of the usual tricks worked, this little lady just wasn’t closing her eyes until it was on her terms. But we waited her out and eventually she just couldn’t stay awake any longer. Hopefully Mom and Dad agree that it was totally worth it! Plus, Dad got to take catch up on some sleep on the studio couch. Maybe he was just trying to show Elsie how it’s done ;)
Mathilda invited her teddy bears to partake in a tea party in the field, around the teddy bear rug in a field. She was a gracious hostess, keeping the animals tea cups topped up with tea, milk and sugar at all times. At the end of the tea party she even put all the animals down for naps :)
