Ahh, the joys of photographing babies! Where would the struggling genius be without a constant stream of brand new little humans to immortalize? It saddens me to think of all the parents who simply don’t get any shots of their little ones and then regret it in later life. Can there be any greater tragedy? Well, yes, clearly there are many but the alternativces to those others do not result in an income stream for me so I have less interest in those.
I wonder what it is that makes children like me. Perhaps it’s the rare opportunity to be someone’s intellectual superior or maybe it’s the goofy facial expressions I produce for them. Anyway, whatever it may be, when a kid comes into my studio it is rare indeed that I can’t weedle a smile from them.
A set of fine props can really aid a photo session. In this case the family brought in Barnabus, the big, tan dog. As you can see, he is a VERY big dog. What you can’t see is just how gentle he is.
Of course, props of this size, irrespective of their demeanor, can cause mayhem simply by stretching. Apparently this is Grandma’s favorite from the shoot!
And this is mom’s!
