So it turns out 2nd child syndrome is a real thing, by the time my first son was 1, he had had 2 super cute and adorable photoshoots and we also had a shoot on every birthday to mark how quickly he was changing and growing. For son no. 2, I barely got my act together to get his first shoot done on his first birthday and then it took me another 6 months to get round to editing and showing the images – I know, I know, bad mummy! I decided to try something new for his birthday and went with a studio background with props for his very own cakesmash. Umm, the cakesmash itself was a little bit of a disaster (who knew toddlers were scared of giant cupcakes?!? :-D) but he loved the second part of the shoot, which was the splish splash. Son no. 2 is a little less amenable to picture taking so this may be the last shoot I ever do with him – lol. Just kidding, I don’t give up so easy and there is no escape from mama’s camera – so he’ll become an expert model in no time. 🙂
Kids seem to grow up way too quickly these days and I’m a true believer in documenting every phase of life, so I’m always glad I do the shoots and I’m slowly building a collection of images on the wall that my family and I cherish now and my boys and their respective families will cherish in decades to come. So don’t keep putting off – capture your little ones and your family just the way they are right now. Get in touch right here to chat about creating beautiful memories for your family here in Lagos.
