The Dixon family wanted professional portraits of their newborn baby, Jill, and heard about our Grow Baby GrowTM package through friends who had a wonderful experience with the portraits we took of their baby. The Dixons loved the idea of capturing Jill’s evolution over the first 18 months, in five portrait sessions, by a professional photographer. On the first session, Pixelford’s Rupert Clark, arrived at the Dixon’s home, and baby Jill was fast asleep in her knitted baby cap.
Rupert explained that the key to getting great baby photos is to capture everything in the moment, without forcing the images. At the next meeting, Jill was very active – sitting up, waving her arms, and charming everyone with her shy smile.
At the eight-month mark, Jill was just learning to crawl, and her wisps of hair were starting to deepen to a lovely red-orange.
At 12 months, Jill went through her shy phase, and turned away from the camera at every chance she got.
When Rupert arrived for the final session, 6 months later, he was greeted by a fiery, wide-eyed toddler running across the sand to meet him.
When Donna Dixon was asked about the result of the photo series, she said, “Of course, as proud parents, we take photos every day of Jill. But, they’re just not of the same amazing quality and emotion as the Pixelford portraits that we cherish so much. We’ll go through the process for our next child, too. And, I’m sure we’ll use Rupert, as Jill has really grown to love him like an uncle. ”
