The Four-Lettered Word

Another Friday.  Another post about babies.

For those of you who are like me and don’t really “get” the whole baby thing or maybe “just aren’t ready” to start a family, I apologize.  It’s been all about that four-lettered word this summer.  But I like to share what I photograph.  And as we all know, they [read babies] are topping the list at the moment.  Some very cute and soft and sleepy babies.  I like sleepy babies.

A couple week’s back, I met up with yet another friend who happened to have a baby the day before Bebita Evita.  This little whipper snapper is named Reece.  I had the pleasure of meeting Reece at a shower beforehand and we instantly became buddies.  Well, he mostly curled up in a ball on my chest and proceeded to nap for what may have felt like an eternity but like I said before, I like sleepy babies.  Snooze on, little man.

Reece Mosaic

I had several good shots of Reece with his adorable parents but these are my favorites.  No posing, just real life unfolding in front of my lens.  I tried to oblige with some posed shots… that involved a University of Louisville football helmet… and we can classify that as a fail.  But I promise, Malana, once little Reece can sit up on his own, we’ll try it again.  That whole not having any neck muscle control is a bitch.

I have one more baby that I know I’ll be photographing.  But you never can tell – I may just have to visit some other pals with new babies.  Which isn’t hard to do.  Because they’re everywhere.

Jonathan Fleming - Great shots! I recently did a shoot for a baby that’s a little older (already walking). I found too that the best shots were the natural ones. I just followed her around and let her direct the shoot =)

I love how you put these together!

Brooke - Thanks Jonathan and Texas Susan!
@Jacqueline – I know! I love that smirk! They kept trying to make him smile and he’d have none of it. Then up pops Marlow and BAM!
@Anamaris – No, this baby has a set of skis. But their still pint size so they are very, very cute. :)
