Blue Eyes, Bottoms and Bubbles…

After photographing Vienna, I understand the evolutionary purpose of big blue eyes…

There is no way you could eat your baby when it looks this cute.

I also understand why bubble baths and babies are not such a good mix. I imagined cute baby flapping arms and bubbles floating in the air: happy family, happy baby, happy bubbles. So I wondered why it was necessary for Vienna’s parents to read the ingredient label so carefully before selecting which bubbles to use. I thought, bubbles are bubbles are bubbles… nothing harmful with bubbles. But now I understand…

Once Vienna entered the bubble bath, the bubbles went straight into the mouth again and again and again. I think it will be Vienna’s first and last bubble bath for a couple more months. Even still the occasion was pretty cute… and we did get some happy family, happy baby, happy bubbles shots when she wasn’t eating the bubbles.

  3. so I really want you to shoot our family when it is four (12) this December or maybe January when we are all a bit less shocked. I wonder if we could get all 12 of us in one shot? Chickens, cats, dogs, kids and grown ups? If anyone could do it, it is you, my bff. Anyway, I want to work on that little plan. But I still want to see you before then too. Greedy? perhaps but I miss you.
