You’ve mastered sitting up. You can roll around with the best of them.

Now for that very tricky business of getting those little legs working and standing up.

Tip #1: Pick a spot with a soft landing.

Tip #2: Have your loving family around for support.

Now clamber, grab and heave.

Reality check for the second born. Big brothers have a habit of muscling in and showing you how to do it. They’ve been there. Probably done it. Most likely got the t-shirt first.

Yes, we can absolutely get the family portraits that light Granny up with affection for her family. But I also love to make sure we get those images that capture the rough and tumble of a house full of boys. Sitting in a neat family pile isn’t half as fun as rolling around and having me capture your boys trying to escape from a brisk tickle.

It’s a beautiful day. The sun is out. Time to release the boys into their own beautifully kept patch of wilderness.

Last cuddle before the youngest reaches his limit (he did wonderfully well) and rests up inside.

The best way to end a family session: the sandwich. That little boy you adore makes THE BEST filling.
