Yesterday we had the pleasure of shooting my Great niece Orla. We were invited to shoot her Mum Sarah when she was pregnant, we shot Orla, Mum Sarah and Dad Scott shortly after she was born and now at about 4 months old we have photographed her again. Babies can be difficult to shoot and sometimes the best way to get the shot is to just be patient and keep shooting. We are usually successful in obtaining something nice but it can be a challenge.
Anyway, Mum had forewarned me that Orla was a little under the weather and there was a possibility that the shoot was going to be postponed. As it turned out, Orla was feeling better on shoot day. I still imagined that she may be grumpy and thats never good in the images. What a joy Orla was to shoot. Very happy child who was very alert and cooperative. Looking forward to her return to the studio at 6 months.
