I made a new friend yesterday: three year old J who had already been practicing his posing before I even arrived made me feel right at home. In fact the whole family was so friendly and a real pleasure to photograph.

It was a really sunny and warm day yesterday and in the house we had the choice between mum and dad’s north facing room and J’s sun-drenched Winnie-the-Pooh themed room with a big bed and a great opportunity for some back-lit reportage-style photos. I opted for black and white on a lot of those to tone down the room scheme and I am thrilled with the result. I think black and white in this case really helped capture the personalities of J and super cute 9 month old R and their brotherly relationship.

I don’t normally venture outside much with babies but the weather was so beautiful we had to take a few shots outdoors too. Again a lot of them are back-lit for a nice sun haze effect.
