Glitter balls and a toddler

We were recently offered the opportunity to be in Mother & Baby magazine who were running a feature on the importance of music and looking for an 18 month old. Edward has been featured in the magazine before (about c sections) but this one called for a photo shoot and telephone interview which I thought sounded like a lot of fun.

A couple of weeks ago we headed over to a beautiful house over looking the Thames in West London. Several shoots were happening for the magazine so we were given a new set of clothes for Edward and waited until we were called.

The photographer took some shots of Edward on his own before he joined three other children of different ages for a group shot. I definitely underestimated how hard photographing children is! Unfortunately the shoot took place over lunch time and as he was wearing special clothes I didn’t want to give him anything which he might get on his clothes. He also missed his usual nap so just wasn’t playing ball. Although I take pics of him every day it was a totally different story when the professional photographer wanted to take pics of him and he was quite grumpy!

This is one of the photographs which ended up in the magazine – to me, it just doesn’t look like Edward. Also, expensive glitter balls and toddlers don’t mix, Edward wanted to watch the planes going past the window rather than face the photographer!  The feature is in this months issue of Mother & Baby magazine.
