They say the hardest things to photograph are food and babies/kids.  That’s probably because the people who say that haven’t worked with 8 week young Kayla.  She’s cute, fat (big for her age), very chill, doesn’t mind being photographed naked, and has adorable expressions.

“Hmmm leather…*drool* (literally)”

“Who’s kissing me?! I can’t see!”

I got to squeeze these cute little arms. Be very jealous.

I like big butts and I cannot lie!

(random note: I’ve been going through so many wedding images lately,  I decided to work on these baby ones.  I knew I was working on too many wedding images when I was walking my dogs this morning (Oatmeal and Raisin) and I called them Thao and Austin (a newlywed couple I photographed recently)

April 28, 2009 meet 2 year old jade

This is a notice to all two year old boys in the future: Jade is going to be the hardest girl you’re ever going to woo.

It took me all day for her just to warm up to me.  I tried to using chips, a stick of chapstick, and flowers, just to try to make this girl like me.  As a result, she backhanded the chip, threw down the flower, and broke the chapstick.  Talk about major rejection right? I would periodically ask “Jade do you like me yet?” and “Are we friends yet?”  And I would always receive “No,” and she would say it in the most cutest voice ever, so the rejections were not that heart-wrenching. I don’t know if I’ve ever tried so hard to make a girl like me, and it wasn’t until the very very very end that she warmed up to me a little bit (and I mean a little bit.) But by that time I wasn’t shooting anymore. icon sad meet 2 year old jade

Despite the obstacles, I still had some amazing shots that I truly , truly love.  What I love about baby photography is there are no two shots that are the same.  Adults will sometimes stare at you until you direct them for another shot, but babies/toddlers they’ll do anything and everything at their own whim, and that is the beauty of baby photography. So I hope you enjoy these photos.

There’s no wrong way to wear sunglasses.

I call this one “No, it’s mine.”

After she fell (running away from me.)  :(

This is how she reacted when she saw a Nikon user. I’m just kidding. This is my last favorite photo of her not wanting to walk.
