Zan: Six-Month Old Sneak Peek
On Sunday, I met up with Zan for his six-month portraits. It’s amazing how quickly babies grow up (and I’ll find out that first hand soon enough). It feels like just yesterday, that I was driving over to his house to meet him for the first time…when he was just seven or eight days old.

It’s usually around six-months old that my baby clients start to really smile and show a bit of their own personality. In at least one case, I even had a six-month old decide to start crawling during our session. With that in mind, Zan was full of smiles on Sunday. He clearly knows a friend when he sees one.

We decided to mix it up a bit this past weekend and meet at the NC Museum of History. Since Zan had been in the hospital the week prior…and with it being a little chilly outside, we kept things indoors. This meant that I not only had to rely heavily on my speed light, but I really had to bring my A game.

For the record, shooting indoors (especially in dark museums) is a challenge. As it relates to my processing, I’m working through a combination of over-exposed and under-exposed photos…but no worries Jessica, I’ve got ya covered.

All that said, when you get a moment like the one above…priceless. I am in love with this shot. Doesn’t Zan look like a baby doll? And the sparkle in his eyes – I have NO idea how I managed to do that.

So, that’s Zan’s six-month portrait preview. I have so many more photos to process…so you may see a few more sprinkled here and there over the next couple of weeks. And this weekend, I’m meeting up with Adeline for her nine-month portraits. You’ll have to come back next Friday to see her preview. 

With all that said, have a great weekend. I’m heading to the doctor today…you know, for that anatomy scan. I haven’t quite figured out how I’ll share the big news – but come back tomorrow to find out if we’re having a boy or girl!
