Rupert’s 6 month Shoot

Baby’s First Year – Session two of Three

derby family photoshoot

On a drizzly day in October I headed out to Rupert’s family home for the second of his three first year photoshoots. He was just a month old during his newborn photoshoot, which was very much focussed on the changing family dynamic. This time, however, Rupert was able to get fully involved with big sister Rose’s crazy games.

When I arrived Rose was having a nap in the room they shared. The kids got suited and booted for the shoot together, which was a lovely moment to capture. Rose is well on her way to growing up to be a professional comedian, and this time I was prepared for a lot of silly, cheeky moments. The epic game of hide and seek lasted for about 45 minutes, and when she got to fill her own cup from the kitchen tap it was like a Big Responsibility. I’ve never seen an apple be played with for so long. And Rupert is now weaning, so there was plenty of opportunity for some brilliant facial expressions from him too!

This session was absolutely brilliant. I love capturing kids at all ages, but getting to go back a 6 months is such a privilege. Here’s to the next one in the spring!
