Meet baby Oliver, at just 5 and a half months old he really is a bundle of cuteness! I met his parents Daisy and Tom for a family photo session in Harpenden last Saturday. Poppy, the family dog, was also very happy to pose and joined us for a couple of shots.

Oliver worked so hard that after an hour he was ready for his nap. Daisy asked me if I could stay a little longer and capture a few shots of him sleeping. He settled himself to sleep in about 5 minutes (why did my children never do that?) and let me take some peaceful shots of his cosy nap on the fluffy rug, what a treat!

Oliver’s serene sleep, his tiny hands and his cute little feet – he really was a dream to shoot. He smiled like a true pro and gorgeous Poppy was a perfect ppoppet too – showing that the old adage ‘Never work with children and animals’ isn’t always true!
