2016 has truly been a year of boys, and I couldn't be happier! Every little boy I've photographed has been super adorable and most of them have been phenomenal sleepers, including this little one. Meet baby Shiv, 8 days old. He wins for the best head of hair and best lips!! He also wins for the funniest moment. Errrr, moments. See below-
Each of my sessions start out with posed shots on the beanbag with usually 2 or 3 colors, then we move onto props, and end with family shots. Usually babies end up peeing or pooping at least once during the session, some much more. But, if they haven't gone by family shots, I forewarn the moms and dads that they are likely in the accident zone. Well, baby Shiv didn't want to prove me wrong, so he decide to leave mom a present, not once, not twice, but 3 times! And then again one more time on my rug while we were cleaning mom up. Each time it happened RIGHT after I got them both situated and stood up to take the picture. It was hysterical! So, instead of the one shot where mom, Ami, is laying on the ground with her hair out holding baby Shiv taking a couple of minutes, I think it took us well over a half an hour when all was said and done. But, as you will see, little Shiv TOTALLY made up for it by giving her smiles in the other pose. So, in the end, it was completely worth it!!!! Gosh, I love my job!!
