Nine months is a super fun, super cute age! Personality is blooming and babies are just so expressive. Crawling, cruising, clapping, eating! So much going on! It also happens to be a very interesting age to photograph. One word: MOBILE! Trying to keep a baby sitting still instead of crawling away is always fun. When I photograph my baby girl, it goes something like this…

Take 1: Place her on the grass, run to my spot, focus, ahhhh – too late – she moved.
Take 2: Put her back on the grass, sitting. Give her a flower! Run to my spot, focus, ahhhh – too late yet again. She is now eating the flower.
Take 3: Remove flower from her mouth. Put her back on the grass, sitting. Give her Sophie the giraffe! Run to my spot, focus, quickly snatch Sophie away – squeak Sophie…and…success! I win :) I even get a smile because she adores Sophie’s squeaks!
