This little guy is almost a year old now. I still find it amazing how fast babies grow right before our eyes. Here he is only a few weeks old.

It’s raining at the moment and it’s freezing. Not the best time for photos I guess. But I love Winter – which hearing myself say is even shocking to myself, I must be going crazy. Just think of it though – cute beanies, stylish scarves, jackets, funky boots. Layers are great in photos! Anyway, I digress, I hope everyone is staying warm AND fashionable.
Meanwhile, check out my adorable children. Before we moved out of our country rental last year, I managed to drag them outside for some winter photos. I mean, aren’t they just crazy stunning creatures.
Here are two blog posts in one. Little Miss Isobel only a few weeks old and then One Year old smashing a cake. How time flies. Way too fast I tell you, it should be illegal for your children to grow up so fast!! – I may or may not be coming off an emotional few days where my first born turned TEN! –
And now just look at her. One year old, as cute as ever.
I can’t begin to explain how much I love photographing families. When I first started this business I was adamant I was going to specialise in newborns, because they “were easy”, and I would try and do as few family sessions as possible because they were “really hard to control”. Yep. Famous first words. Now, well it’s opposite. I quickly realised photographing newborns in the way I thought I was going to, is really really really really difficult. It takes skill, I tell you, and those who you see master this skill have taken years to perfect it – I’m not that determined. Nope. I’m a family photographer through and through. Don’t get me wrong, I love photographing newborns too – but mostly WITH their family.
Why do I love photographing families so much? It’s the connection and bond, the story they give me. Their unique interactions and inside jokes, the way they hold each other, the way they smile at each other – you know, those knowing smiles. It’s what gets me every time.
And here is the Harris family, allowing me to get a glimpse into their world – sharing those personal smiles with each other and my camera. Fan-tasa-lastic isn’t it?
There’s nothing like a fluffy pink tutu to make two adorable sisters shine brighter. Seriously, how gorgeous are they already? Add the tutu’s to the mix and it’s cuteness overload!
This proves how slack I am too, this session was held almost a year ago. But I’m determined to keep sharing all the beautiful sessions I’ve had, better late than never.
What has the title got to do with these photos? I hear you ask. Everything, I say.
It’s how you get genuine reactions from children, simply talk about the things they love.
I did have a head start with these kiddos though, I’ve photographed them before. Repeat clients are awesome. You seriously have no idea how happy it makes me when people I have previously photographed, ask me to do it again. I guess it means I’m doing something right. Sure it’s nice to know that they like what I do for them but it’s also the biggest buzz for me to watch their children grow and develop bigger personalities for themselves.
