My first official portrait model, Rory, is now 2! He’s now a VERY active little boy, so we had a lot of action-shots at this session.
In keeping with my art-documentary approach I don’t take props to a shoot. I think kids in particular respond best to their own toys and in a familiar environment, and it results in more real photos of this moment in his life. The shoot took place at their home, and mostly centred around Rory playing on his favourite toy: a balance bike. After a run-around outside (Rory’s dad was also a great sport and got in on the action in a few shots) we moved inside where we had a few more quiet moments.
