Terrible Twos? Not at all!

Terrible Twos? Not at all!

Someone once told me that when a baby turns two that marks the beginning of the ‘terrible twos’ – when all restraints are off, and baby does what she likes, when she likes, and learns to complain loudly when he or she doesn’t get her own way!  But not always!  Today for my single family portrait photography session at Dundonald, (I was at a wedding this afternoon) I had this really delightful little two-year old, whose activities were more than enough to provide fun for the camera!  Including a great desire to carry a chair around with her!  (A small Ikea child’s chair – I hasten to add!)

Here she is on the sheepskin rug in the studio..

Bird’s Nest – #Chromakey

Altogether I had five children in the studio today, and among them was this lovely wee bird…

The image was made with Chromakey Techniques, using a green screen, Nikon D700, f/11 @ 1/125th Sec on ISO200.  Two studio lights, one to my right, an Elinchrom 250 Classic as the key light, with fill-in light provided by an Elinchrome 125 behind me, at the back of the studio.



Bob McEvoy of Portraits2Go Photography Studio at Inspire Business Centre, Dundonald in conjunction with the Baby of The Month Competition is offering Mums with babies under 12 months old the opportunity to enter a national photography competition that will generate much needed funds for orphaned baby elephants in Africa.

Any baby entered into the competition will receive a beautiful soft elephant toy called Tembo (which means Elephant in Swahili) and Tembo represents orphaned baby elephants that have been taken into the care of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which rescues, and re-introduces back into the wild, orphaned baby elephants.


This is a fantastic opportunity to have wonderful photographs taken of babies at a delightful age, and at the same time support a worthy cause. The competition has monthly prizes of Mothercare vouchers to the value of £100 and each winner is put forward into the annual ‘Baby of the Year’ competition, with one baby having the chance to win £5000!
