Ruby’s crazy mop of dark curls create natural definition in her shots and photograph beautifully. Coupled with this, she has an enormous smile and very playful character so this was a high energy, fun family shoot. There were also enormous amounts of slobber as this is prime teething age, but a quick wipe here and there and a bit of photoshop magic afterwards during editing removed any traces from her final images.
The whole event had clearly been an exciting adventure for Ruby. From her train journey in from Milton Keynes to being in the spotlight in the studio, she was clearly enjoying herself and it was all eyes on Ruby as her cheeky personality really shone.
Our new chaise longue prop also had its first outing, as it’s perfect cruising height. It doubles up as a handy seat when the energy starts to wane, and allowed Ruby the chance to look at a book during a pit stop as the photos show. We love shots like this, its not always the traditional ‘smile at the camera’ images that capture a magical quality; it’s very often candid moments that draw the viewer into a photo and make a connection . Ruby’s concentration really shows, and some of these more natural expressions form really precious memories.
