This week I ventured into an area of photography I never thought I would - baby photos!
But, always up for trying something new, I put my reservations aside and invited two friends and their baby boys, Harry (8 months) and Gabriel (5 months) over for a shoot.
They say never work with children or animals and I now know why. I've never had a model piss over my floor before or need a break after 30 mins because they needed a nap or some milk! They also are incapable of holding a pose.
However, I did manage to get some pretty good shots of the little cherubs. I particularly like the pink bear holding the babies. Given the bear represents the transformation between innocence and corruption - and these little men are so untainted.
Their mums - unsurprisingly - weren't all that objective about the images and just loved them all, but here's a selection of best, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Gabriel was super smiley through out the majority of the baby photo session

Gabriel was quite the baby model
That is one big smile in this photo
Harry got a little bit painty in the studio!
