Introducing baby Oliver and his family from Northampton. Mum and Dad popped by the studio at the weekend with 8 week old Oliver for a relaxed and natural family portrait shoot that had been arranged by Oliver’s proud Auntie. Auntie wanted to give her Brother and Sister-in-law a special new baby gift to celebrate the birth of their first child.
When the family arrived at the studio, little Oliver was awake and ready for action. Unlike a newborn shoot, where the baby is required to be in a deep sleep, when baby is that little bit older like Oliver, it’s lovely to have them awake and interacting with their surroundings.
We started the shoot my laying Oliver onto a fluffy blanket covered beanbag and letting him have a good old kick around. For such a young baby, Oliver had a lovely varied set of expressions and he was quite happy to lay there for a while and check out what was going on.
