meet Baby Ruth
Then, after nearly two hours of work & sweat...
Moving on from the "tree" we tested another idea with Baby Ruth (yes that's my arm holding the scale)
knowing we had it under control, we replaced Baby Ruth with our very patient baby "Y," who slept through this
again, bean bag was photoshopped out of the image.
and because he was doing so well, we went on to the propped head shot. Another composite. Never was "Y"s head left to dangle in the open air. he needed a little "shushing" by Ms Kami and then - after Kami worked her magic -
Satisfied with our very long session of artsy (or Geddy-esque ...they could also be called "Carrie & Brittany-esque...you photogs know what I'm saying) shots, we moved on to the simple shots. At this point, "Y" was waking up and not quite as sleepy as before. So, a little cuddling and patting was necessary again.
and, at the end of it all, you can see he was quite happy with his warm cuddle time in the studio.
