One of the best things about being a photographer of little people, is that you often get to watch kids grow. I’m sometimes the first non-family member to see a bub for the first time and I really value the connection I make with each and every one of my clients.
I then get to watch that child grow and am the person called upon to capture them at their milestones – when they can sit up by themselves, at their first birthday and then family photos as they get older.
I first met Josh and Amie when they brought Mia over to my old studio in town just before Christmas last year. Mia was just 5 days old! She was such a smiley little thing and performed little an absolute star!
The Shones recently brought Mia back to the studio to update their photos of her and get a few more family shots as well. Mia was again, just a delightful little cherub and really did shine!
She was fully of cheeky little grins, but also had some very cute (and funny) facial expressions. I think frowny faces on bubs are just gorgeous!!
Mum Amie has been busy making headbands and we were able to use a number of those during the shoot. The colours that she had chosen actually worked in really well with many of the fabrics and props that I had already set aside to use during the shoot. (Great minds think alike!)
I still look into Mia’s beautiful bug blue eyes and am blown away by how breathtaking they are!
I can’t wait for the next time that I see the Shone family. Mia is sure to be even more beautiful!
