Babies…photography…summertime…baby photography in the summertime…yes yes yes! As soon as Callie’s mama mentioned a milk bath I knew I wanted to do a fruit bath for Callie’s milestone pictures too. Milk bath sessions for mamas are BEAUTIFUL, but when it comes to baby photography putting a sweet baby in a tub full of milk and flowers or water and fruit is literally one of the cutest things on the planet in my humble opinion.
Photographing Callie as a 3 month old meant that I had the good fortune of knowing in advance that she was a super smiley happy baby! I LOVE photographing kiddos as they grow and seeing their personalities blossom. However, baby photography isn’t always predictable and it HAS to be baby-led. Despite all of our perfectly laid plans, Callie was GRUMPY the day of our session. She didn’t like the water, she wasn’t hungry for snacks, and she wanted a nap NOW. Well, in this business, the baby is always right so we decided to give Callie what she needed and wait for a better day. I’m SO GLAD we did.
Callie showed up for our rescheduled milestone session ready to go. She was all smiles and giggles and splashes! She was also validation that we work WITH our baby clients, not against them. The baby is ALWAYS right.
