Neo is 6 months old. I met him and his parents for his first photoshoot in a park.
6 months old is just so perfect for a baby shoot. I just love sitting babies! Especially ones with gorgeous chubby cheeks and beautiful smiles. He wasn’t too sure about the green prickly grass in the beginning of the shoot, but there was so much going on around him that he soon forgot about it.
Neo and his family live in Dubai and are in Johannesburg on holiday at the moment. Even though they lived here for many years, they’d never been to this park before so I thoroughly enjoyed showing them around.
The Walter Sisulu botanical gardens in Ruimsig are looking incredible at the moment, considering we haven’t had any summer rain yet. There was plenty of green grass and the indigenous flowers were looking so beautiful! Strangely the park was quiet on Sunday afternoon (probably the intense heat), so we had a huge variety of settings to choose from. It’s just a pity the black eagles didn’t bless us with an appearance when we got to the waterfall at the end of the shoot.
