Meet baby Jacob. He’s 11 weeks old and he lives with his Mum, Jil, and Dad, Jason, in Auckland, New Zealand. I’ve known his Mum for over 10 years now as she is originally from Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Jil moved to New Zealand 5 years ago and is back for a visit to introduce Jacob to all her family and friends. While here she decided to take the opportunity to get some lovely photos of Jacob too.
Jil and Jacob arrived at my house on Monday afternoon for a mini shoot in the living room. I have to say Jacob seemed to be in quite a happy mood! As we laid Jacob down on the settee covered in a million blankets, he was gurgling to his mum as I snapped away.
There were only a few minor incidents – Jacob decided to do a number 1 on each and every blanket, missing my face by an inch -phew! I was just happy there was no number 2’s 😉
He was so good for the entire shoot and even fell asleep in time for some beautiful mother and baby shots!
We didn’t have too much time for photos as we realised Jacob was a bit peckish when he started snacking on the blankets!
Here’s a taste of what we got:-
I just had to put these up… Halfway through the shoot I asked Jil to give Jacob a kiss on his head. When I pointed out that it looked more like she was eating his head than kissing it, Jil just collapsed into a fit of giggles and so did I…
It was a really fun shoot 🙂
