I've photographed my friend's little girl Lilly before but she was only 6 months old, now she's 2 and a half and Mum's pregnant again so this is a catch up photoshoot!
Being only 2 and half Lilly's patience for posing is short so, as I always try to do, I keep changing set ups to keep the interest and get a many different looking photos as possible.
So here we go starting with a chair against a plain wall in the home. I know I'm starting to repeat the look of my images but they work when trying to get a clean and realistic image of children.
Cheeky little face! Onto the beanbag but unfortunately Lilly is a little young to master the girly leaning on hands etc poses!
A bit abstract but I love this next one with her toy duck.
And then bring in Sarah and Paul (and bump but generally I'm not showing Sarah's pregnancy in these pictures)
Moving outside gives me a chance for a little more posing and a change in style before Lilly really won't pose anymore!
I really love the feel of this next image!
And then we let Lilly roam in her garden to get a few more natural shots.
Next time the family will be four and I'm sure I'll get a chance to take some great photos!
My few weeks back in England are almost over, I will be sharing some of the landscapes I've been photographing before I go but then possibly expect a another few blog free months I guess...
