Did I call your 4 month old baby moody? Yes, I did.... The four month old session is the fastest of all the sessions at usually 20-30 minutes. I schedule an hour just in case baby needs a milk or Mommy break. In the top image of Barrett on the white backdrop, he's DONE. He wants nothing to do with me and my itsy bitsy spider song anymore. He needs his Mommy and some milk. We took about a 15 minute milk break and it was like he was a new man. That's all he needed to be a happy baby again. The four month baby can go through all the emotions during their session and usually do. I have to act fast.
I just happened to be at the right place and right time to catch baby digging for gold. Mommy said she will show this one on display at his wedding one day.
The typical 4 month session begins with Mommy, Daddy, and baby once more with the studio backdrop. After about 5 minutes of family in the session, we photograph baby one more time on the beanbag (baby on the white backdrop). Since baby will be rolling and crawling soon, it's the last time to be on the beanbag.
I have several padded floordrops to choose from that replica hardwoods. I photograph whatever stage baby is in developmentally. Some babies at the 4 month session cannot hold up their head when on their tummy, some babies are rolling all over, it all depends on the baby. Since most babies are not sitting independently at the 4 month session ( I've only seen one baby that could sit at this session in the last 15 years), I mostly photograph from an angle above and avoid props. This session is all about simplicity (remember the moody baby phase I was telling you about).
