It’s the year of the Head Shot…

So far my first three photo shoots this year have been head shots… which is way more exciting for me than for the person I am photographing.

Typically I get some pretty big groans and grumbles and usually the common expression, “I hate having my photo taken,” comes out.

And I say, “Yes, me too, and so do most people over the age of 10.”

But then we talk about other things… favorite foods, best vacations, what crazy things their kids said this morning, and before they know it we are all done.

And that’s when I hear, “Well, that wasn’t so bad after-all.”

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.
