For those of you who know me, this will not come as a shock....I am not a baby person. I never have been - not really even with my own fabulous offspring. I love them, no doubt - but I do not get warm and fuzzy holding them. This news is good for some - I am not a baby hog. I am not the first one in line excited to hold any of my friends beautiful new arrivals. This used to perplex me - I wasn't quite sure what was wrong with me? And then I figured it out - I thrive on interaction and feedback. Babies don't interact much except for the crying thing. And that is when, if I happen to be holding a little bundle of joy, I promptly hand them back to the brave soul who brought them into the world.
So - this biggest challenge? Photographing them. This has been quite an obstacle because I couldn't find my comfort level. Until now - baby E and her amazing mother came by for a shoot last week and we had fun! baby E was such a perfect little model and such a good sport. Mom and I put her in hats, bows, baskets and so on to get that perfect shot. Turns out, we got a few.
