Last week I had the pleasure of shooting this little bundle of cuteness. My friend asked me to capture the birthday girl in her Hungry Caterpillar birthday suit (custom made). I had an absolute ball and was glad that the little one wasn’t terrified of me. We were both a little stiff at first, but by the time we got to the 100th frame we were cruising along. But I had to quickly adapt and remember that I can’t “direct” a two-year old the same way I would, say, The Hubs. So it was no wonder when I said, “Hey, maybe we could get a shot of you other there” that a mouth-gaping, non-response would follow. Her mother was a life-saver and really got her to smile big and “……now look at the camera!!!” It was also my first time shooting something like this with my 50mm — I really like that piece of glass.
(I can’t believe she’s gotten so big.)
