OK so not every baby shoot works with the same props and positioning! As documentary photographers we have to work out each bubs' temprement and comfort zone and work within those boundaries... hence we visit them in their evnironments in order to reduce the stress as much as possible.
With Darcie, we tried a few things and just kept on keeping on until she settled a little. We had a breather whilst she fed and set up new scenarios... it can be a lengthy session! But at the end of the day these little people are only this little for the shortest time and it's worth the investment capturing everything we can. She was so beautiful and so calm when we got it right, but she certainly let us know when we didn't! xx
