On Saturday I had the pleasure of spending the morning with Chloe, Jason and their gorgeous 5 week old baby boy, Ollie! Chloe was Katie’s Rainbows leader up until she went on maternity leave to have Ollie. When she left, the Rainbows Mums wanted to thank her for being such an amazing leader, and contributed towards a newborn photography session for her and Jason.
Upon arriving I discovered that Jason is also a very keen and talented photographer – talk about pressure!! I think it made a nice change for him to be on the other side of the camera for once though, and I was sure to get plenty of Daddy and Baby shots.
It was a dull and dreary ‘Summer’ morning, and poor Ollie had a tummy ache for much of the session so the gods weren’t really smiling on us, but we had a lot of fun and got some great images! I was glad to be able to draw on my recent Natural Light class to utilise some of the dramatic light – I particularly love the shots in his cot! Being a slightly “older” newborn Ollie was more awake and alert, so we were also able to get some great ‘wide eye’ shots which are such a treat at this age!
Congratulations Chloe and Jason on your new arrival, he is absolutely adorable!! Here are a few of my favourites to share:
