A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to have family photos taken by the gorgeous Kirsten from Little Rascals Photography – if you are in the Newcastle area and are looking for a great family photographer look no further – I can highly recommend her.
A professional photo session is a bit of a luxury for a family on a budget but I am so, so glad we signed up. I take photos of Sweet Pea on a daily basis – a lot of photos – and some of them are great – they capture her personality, her energy and her spirit, and some of them are not so great… They are usually quick snaps taken on my phone with not a lot of thought, or time, for settings and light or getting the “best” angle – I just point and shoot and hope for the best!
Sweet Pea was definitely herself at our photo shoot with Kirsten – she ran and jumped and did roly poly’s. She giggled and chattered and refused to do what was asked of her – all true to form and some of the traits I love so much about her. What I didn’t expect her to be was still. And she wasn’t. Except for this one moment which Kirsten captured and the light fell across her and around her and she just looked straight into the camera and was still. Just for a moment. And then she was off again.
There are so many beautiful shots of us and our girl from that afternoon but this one is my favourite – my baby just being. Still.
