This was my last of three shoots spread over Annie's first 14 months on the planet. It's always a fascinating experience seeing how my client's children change over their first year of life. Seeing the beginnings of their personality, observing the physical change and documenting it is actually a privilege when I think about it. I also try to get the parents in on a few shots. This is extremely important as these sort of photographs will have untold value to the child/children in the future. Consider how often you've looked at a photograph of you as a child with a parent or grandparent who is no longer with you. Now try to put a price on that photograph. Not easy is it? Never underestimate the value of a photograph. And yet how many people are prepared to pay for good photography these days? Ironic. Fortunately, Annie's parents and indeed her aunt, uncle and maternal grandparents are probably my best clients. If memory serves, including pre-wed shoots, weddings, family gatherings and baby portraits I've photographed members of this family some 11 or 12 times! I'm certainly not a religious man but that's going to count as a blessing in my book! Here's a few of my favourite shots from Annie's last 3 in 1 with me but I do hope it won't be the last time I ever photographer her and her family (I have a sneaking suspicion it won't be). The last set of pics is a little reminder of how much Annie has changed in 14 months.
