Baby Jacob

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 🙂


About Maria

I am a female UK Photographer based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. My speciality is People Photography, but that's not where it ends... I started taking photo's a long time ago when I was very young and my mother gave me her vintage Kodak Brownie which she was given when she was 16! (about 50 years ago) ... I've been taking photos ever since! As soon as I decided I wanted to make a career out of photography, I bought my first DSLR camera in 2008, and then I started studying for my diploma in photography. After that I did lots of "free" work before launching my business fully on the 6th January 2011....and that’s where the fun began! I am a perfectionist, quite feisty, brutally honest but fun ;) I have two crazy dogs called Izzy & Ozzy (part Chihuahua, part Jack Russell) and when they aren't at the vets they make for great models ;) In my spare time (when I have some) you may find me down at the gym....(cough)....where they have a lovely massage program and a great manicurist! hehe ;) I hope you enjoy the blog; meanwhile if you would like to contact me, here are my details: • T – 07947 511 377 • E – • W – Anything else you want to know - just ask!
