This shoot went absolutely nothing like I had planned. I had spent hours the weekend before preparing for it. Buying props and planning out my mode of attack/but quickly upon arriving to the house and meeting baby Kai, I learned that I was running nothing. After hours, two smoothies, some laughs, some frusturations, hugs from Aiden, and a few diaper changes I was completely exhausted and defeated. I was scared and didnt want to look at the images and beating myself up over shooting babies. “Babies are not for me.” I said. This is too hard. This shoot went nothing like I planned, but tonight after looking at these images. The intimacy between family and new baby……… I am so glad, it went nothing like I planned. I am in love with this baby, this family, this thing called photography for the images below, alone. This is exactly how this shoot was suppose to be and it was only after I stopped trying to hard that these happened.
