"Life's greatest adventure is finding your place in the
circle of life"
- The Lion King
Welcoming a new addition to the family is an exciting time in that it brings a whole host of emotion. Joy, fear and most of all love.
I'm told that you are more relaxed when you have a second child and this couldn't have rung more true in this instance. To have a relaxed Mum and Dad often makes for an easy shoot as then baby is essentially relaxed. This was certainly the case with this little one. As well as the fact that the room was warmed to a temperature close to that of a midday in an African summer! What a little poser and so good as well.
Watching from the side and being encouraged as much as possible was 'big' sister. Siblings are coping with a lot when they welcome a new addition. They are no longer the baby of the house and often don't want to do anything they are told in terms of posing. I was lucky enough to capture a few rare moments between these two little ones.
All in all taking photos becomes very tiring for the star of the day and my only wish for this little super star is that he may find his adventure and place in the circle of life. Thank you so much to Mum and Dad for allowing me to share these moments with you.
