Eris Eveiller is a local Burlesque performer and I had the pleasure of working with her a couple of years ago when we did a portfolio building shoot. We've always kept in contact and when she told me she was pregnant, I jumped at the chance of giving her a maternity shoot to capture this exciting time.
It helps greatly that Eris knows how to pose and this session was a bit more extrovert than the normal maternity session, but that's exactly what was wanted!
Moving on a month and a half later, baby Matty arrived! Again, Eris came back to the studio to get the newborn session completed, which is such an important moment to get captured. The time frame for getting these sweet pictures is really small, so fortunately he came in at just the right time (under two weeks old) and was an absolute star! Slept through almost the entire session, which was great as it cut the session down from the normal 4 hours.
I hope to see Matty back again as he grows up and look forward to the next "little model" to get their first professional images.
