This is one of my favourite little guys to photograph. Our first session together was just before Christmas and he was so smiley and happy, while rocking his fabulous Christmas jumper. Last week I was invited to his house just after he turned one to photograph him with all his new toys.

Not only is the little boy himself very easy to work with, but his parents are great at amusing him for the photos by blowing bubbles, passing him balloons and giving him a mighty tickling. This makes my job so much easier. While I’m happy to do all I can to help a child relax, obviously parents know best how to make their child happy so if they focus on that, I can concentrate on using my tools (camera and light) to record their joy.
