Baby Holly

Baby Holly visited the studio-pod today for the second stage o her ‘Baby’s First year’ photoshoot.  I offer these fantastic short sessions at 4 months, eight months and twelve months. Session one sees baby lifting their head and taking an interest, session two and he or she is sitting up, and session three is usually a cake-smash with our big figure one in the background!

Frequently I shoot the second session on Greenscreen (Chromakey), as with this session.  I used the Fujifilm X-T3, F=47mm, f/5.6 @ 1/125th sec on ISO400.  Two Elinchrom studio lights (flash).

Baby Molly visited the new ‘Studio-Pod’ at Ballygowan (aka ‘Man-Cave for retired photographers! LOL) for the first visit of her ‘Baby’s First Year’ photoshoots.  What a lovely subject she was.  To maintaining social distancing and good practice, her mummy had to do all the hard work, moving props, and posing her – but it was fine, and we got the studio visit over in around 20 minutes.

In the studio I used the Fujifilm X-T3 camera, fitted with a Fujinon XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R, LM, Wr lens.  Before the visit the fabrics and floor were washed and sterilised, hand sanitiser, masks and gloves were made available, and afterwards all fabrics went straight into the washing machine.  As we all say – “When you pod – Pod safely!

The new normal!

‘Elf & Safety!

Panic set in at our Dundonald studio today, when this wee man came in for his photoshoot and just as he arrived the fire alarm went off! We thought it was an ‘Elf & Safety Inspection!’ But it wasn’t – it was Rueben, in for his second ‘Baby’s First Year’ photoshoot. He had a ball with the studio snowballs!
