The First Shot - A picture or two

Baby Ellis1-AL2_3022

At this time of year I am busy doing lots of family portrait sessions. Hopefully the images will be printed and end up as Christmas presents gracing Grandparent's walls for years to come. I do bang on about it quite a bit but you really can't beat a nicely framed picture. I digress ... this post wasn't about the merits of printed media although gift vouchers are available!

This post is all about the first shot of a session. It is amazing just how often the very first shot is my favourite. This was the first shot and there is just a great natural expression.
