On September 14th 2011 our family welcomed Massimo into our home. In a complete rebuttal of the assumption that the later children are denied the photographic attention of the siblings that came before, we spent an obscene amount of time playing with him and our camera.
This post shows only a small portion of what we did, we’ll post more later.
I lead this post with an image I’m absolutely in love with:
For those terrified at the sight of the little one on that shelf, be sure to read the rest of the post after the images.
We hope you enjoyed these photos documenting what our little one looked like just before turning 10 days old. If you enjoyed these be sure to come back and check out the rest… there are a few that are absolutely hilarious!
Ok, and finally about that first image at the beginning of the post. I’m sure some of you are wondering “how could he possibly endanger his son for a shot?!”
Well… let’s just say David Copperfield would be proud.
Of course I would NEVER endanger anyone for the sake of a photo. Cameras can tell the truth but they can be used to tell lies… in this case I purposely positioned the camera to fool your eye into thinking the shelf Massimo was on is much narrower than it really is and that it’s positioned in the same way as the others. it isn’t. And thanks to the magic of photoshop you can’t see that Mommy’s hands are much closer to Massimo’s butt than you might ever imagine by looking at the image.
Sneak peek from an amazing baby bump session with Deanna and Yomi.
We shot the whole session on the beach in Miami and it was tons of fun. The amazing outfit Deanna is wearing was … made by her! How epic is that?!?!?!
So did you see the “shoe” shot? Well… notice that side-by side there’s a shot with baby’s shoeprint next to daddy’s shoeprint? Well… you’re going to have to wait for the full post to see how amazing daddy’s and baby’s shoes look next to each other 🙂
It was such a pleasure to work with you guys. Anyone who sees the photos can tell that the camera loves both of you (can’t imagine how adorable the little one will be) but we got to see how nice and helpful and kind you were, and that’s a gift your little one will enjoy even more.
When someone asks me to do a portrait session for them, I tend to assume that everything they tell me about themselves is true. Unfortunatelly this particular pregnant mom challenges my ability to believe her.
Can you really have two little wild ones running around the house all day, a third one on the way, and still look THIS GOOD?!
Usually I like to take most pregnant portraits (with the exception of the less-clothed ones of course) outdoors … in this case I couldn’t pass up the fantastic contrast of Lisette’s white dress against the chocolate couch.
Finally here is the supposed proof that she has at least another child:
Thank you Derrick and Heather for a wonderful maternity session. We had a great time shooting both at their home and then on Hollywood beach. We are so excited for you and can’t wait to welcome your little one into the world!
