I travelled up to North London for this lovely family’s photographs. Luca was awake and ready for his baby photographs, enjoying the cuddles with his parents. It was Luca’s 5 month birthday, and Sandra was quite pleased to have the morning captured in photographs. Besides all his cheeky grins, Luca was also teething – and really enjoyed chewing on his giraffe toy. So we had to time the photographs in between his chomps – bouncing and cuddling him to keep him happy. I remember when my children were teething, and Sandra and Mark handled the situation beautifully, Sandra even allowing Luca to chomp on her finger for a couple shots to keep him happy. Luca also enjoyed sitting in his bumbo, which is great for photographs as it helps the babies sit up straight. We sat the bumbo on the table and Luca was particularly interested in looking out the window, rather than the camera lens! Sandra and Mark’s flat was a great backdrop for the photos, with large windows for the natural light, neutral walls and even a plexiglass staircase (which I think is brilliant!). I loved my morning with this gorgeous family, and look forward to watching Luca grow!
