Monday, I had the coolest morning….we filmed a commercial for the studio!
I had put out a casting call, here on the blog, for all past clients who may be interested in being a part of the filming for the commercial. With the filming came a complementary session and some prints – what a fun deal that is! We were in need of a family with a newborn, and a family with children. Only two families could be selected, and this here is our newborn family!
Jill and Arnaud welcomed their son, J into the world a little more than a week ago. He is just the love of their lives, and it shows both in pictures and in person. What a warm little family they are!
I photograph TONS of newborns…..TONS! I see newborns weekly, and spend a great deal of time getting pooped on, peed on, or stepping in such messes….so you can say I am pretty experienced with the new little ones. This little man, however, was by far the absolute BEST and EASIEST baby to photograph! He earns top points for:
1. Sleeping through the entire session
2. Nursing only twice very briefly
3. Peeing only once – and on dad, of course
4. Not pooping once…NOT ONCE!
Now THAT is the ultimate newborn session!
Our session ran for a little over 2 hours, and we captured some really special images for this new family to treasure.
I had a chance to get some Q&A from mom and dad, and here it is:
1. Dad….J is your first baby. How has this experience changed you so far? What are you most looking forward to?
How has this changed me so far, one word: priorities. You are told by people and friends around you how wonderfull this experience is and you try to imagine it. It’s much better than that!
I look forward to inventing a way to have him stay the unbelievable ball of love that he is right now. I am throwing away all clocks in the house.
2. J’s best talent so far
That face with pursed lips that says : Oh, i just thought of something…nevermind, i don’t remember now…
3. Does J have a nickname?
4. For Dad: A little factoid about me that no one else knows about…
I have to approve all shoe purchases that my wife makes. I’m an advanced women’s shoe stylist.
5. For Mom: My favorite indulgence is…
S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G for shoes…
6. Starbucks or Tim Hortons coffee?
A Triple tall latte a day keeps the doctor away
7. Baby never goes anywhere without…
clothes? lest we forget to dress him and he ends up on camera…
8. Describe your baby using ONE adjective
