Cobbler finally fixes his own shoes – a photo shoot for my daughter
Even though I shoot children’s portraits professionally, and take countless shots of my own daughter Fionnuala, it had been a while since I’d done a more formal shoot with her.
With Finn’s mother and grandparents pointing out that it was long overdue, we were out early into the Santa Fe morning in our neighbour’s garden (thanks, Loretta), to come up with the goods.
Fionnuala was telling me stories the whole time, so I just kept asking her questions and waited until she cracked herself up.
It was a joy to shoot, especially as it was taking photographs of Finn as a baby that got me to pick up the camera more seriously again in the first place.
The family is placated, and the whole thing got me looking forward to the paid job I’ve got scheduled this weekend.
Here are some of the images we came up.
