Here we have Jack auditioning for Britains Got Talent, and by the looks of things it wasn't the most successful audition. I can just imagine him biting back at Simon in the photo below, shouting, "What do you mean I stink as bad as my nappy?"
Seriously though, I thought photographing him beside my clarinet would be a great way of showing his height at 16 months. Also, it was one of those great interactive props that kept him occupied while I snapped him. This clarinet belonged to Jack's namesake, great grandfather Jack. Papa Jack plays loads of instruments, and I think Jack might have inherited an interest in instruments too. He definitely comes from a musical family!
As for the outfit, it's another vintage classic from our friends at the Rusty Zip. He wears the little jumper all the time, but I must admit, taking him out in the matching knitted shorts might be a bit much, so I thought I would just take a photo of him wearing these before he grows out of them. There's no denying they're cute on him, even though they're totally rare.
I took this against my summer green back drop, and changed the colour slightly, just for a change. I also used my SB-800 external flash.
