If you like to photograph babies you have to accustom to their time schedule. If they are in a good mood early in the morning, you have to get up early to take the best shots. If they want to sleep, you wait. If they want to eat, you wait. The good thing: There is no stress. You take what you get. You just have to be flexible and see what happens.
Today I was very lucky. Not only because I could photograph this baby session in my city, but especially because Lea was such a great model! Exploring everything new (the photographer and his camera) with her beautiful, big eyes. Being already 6 months old she was quite active. Moving a lot, turning from one side to the other. A challenge for a photographer. But she did great and only did get tired after 2 hours of taking pictures! Wow, I guess at the end I was more exhausted than her :-)
Thanks for being my model, Lea, and congratulations to the happy parents. It was a pleasure to meet your family!
