This is gorgeous little Esmae who lit up our studio recently. She was a delight to photograph and I was able to capture some really cute smiles. Esmae is also that little bit extra special in that she was born with an extra-little finger on her right hand, a perfectly formed little extra toe on her right foot, and a weeny little extra toe on her left foot.
Esmae’s mum was keen for me to capture images of her hands and feet to remember them so tiny, and to be able to show Esmae when she’s older. On the advice of surgeons they may decide to have her little pinky removed at a later date if it is the best thing for Esmae. But for now it was simply wonderful to see this extra special child, and to be able to capture these wonderful images for them.
Thanks very much to Esmae’s mum for letting us show the results.
