I photographed this family's first born when he was a similar age, and so I was delighted to get a call to photograph his little brother almost 6 years later.
What I also love is that they decided to book me to photograph him on his own, without his big brother. The reason I say that is, being a younger sibling myself, it's so often the case that there are hundreds of photos of the older brothers and sisters, and practically none of the subsequent children by themselves. Well, not so with this little chap.
This family are NCT friends of mine and when I photographed their eldest son I'd literally just started out on my photography journey. In fact, when I photographed him I think I still had every intention of going back to my PR job at Capital Radio, but the more little jobs I did during my maternity leave (I practiced on A LOT of friends), the more I thought I could turn it into a business.
The rest, as they say, is history. I didn't go back to that job and slowly but surely I built my photography business and managed to be a full time mum at the same time. The best decision I've ever made.
