When you book a session with me I always ask if there are specific details you want to capture. For some people it’s a gap toothed grin, for others it’s eyelashes or dimples. In the case of gorgeous baby Roma the answer from mum Jenn was his fuzzy little ears! This is such a sweet marker of a moment in time. Peach fuzz on ears, shoulders, cheeks; personally I can’t get enough. It’s fleeting details like this that we need to preserve in pictures.
Roma was nearly 3 months old when I had the pleasure of meeting him, his folks, and brother-from-a-puppy-mother, Bowie. Despite Bowie’s best efforts to steal the show and prove he is still the centre of attention, Roma stole my heart. He has well and truly mastered smiling (awake and asleep) and was not shy in flashing me his most charming twinkly-eyed grin. Roald Dahl said “It’s impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren’t feeling twinkly yourself”. I’d suggest that Roma is living a pretty twinkly life right now.
Jenn and Oscar, thank you so much for asking me to capture this chapter in your family’s love story. I had so much fun chatting with you guys and I hope you love this account of our morning together!
