Meet my nephew Holden.
Let me begin by saying I would never do this with a client’s baby. This is my sister Monica and her partner Ruth’s baby. These ladies passionately rescue animals. I’ve lost count of how many animals are in their house 😉
This little cat is mine and his name is “Princess Wand Mermaid Ariel Unicorn Pegasus”; I call him Hunter. :-p
Ruth and Monica sneaked the cat into the studio to cuddle with them while I cuddled with Holden. Hunter kept escaping and burying himself in the brown rug next to Holden and I.
Holden was all posed and ready to go with one of his mommies was right next to Holden. I wrapped my fingers in between Holden and the kitten’s paws while I waited for the kitten to fall asleep in the position I was holding him in. Honestly, the posing of the kitten was very similar to posing newborns. It helps that the kitten was only a few weeks older than Holden (5-6 weeks).
My favorite part of the kitten images? The monochromatic color scheme. I love newborns on monochromatic color schemes. It’s so dreamy and leaves the focus on your precious baby.
Oh, and in addition to the kitten, we totally nailed the cousin shot as for the grandparent’s Christmas gift. There may have been marshmallow bribery involved.
However, the marshmallow bribery was totally worth it! Here are my mom and dad opening a 20×30 canvas of all four of their grand babies at Christmas.
My mama cried in joy for a good 10 minutes after this video was taken. This reaction and resulting joy is one of the reasons I highly encourage my clients to purchase products rather than just digital files. Digital files can corrupt or grow out of date (think 3.5″ floppies), but a new file can always be made from the archival print or album that you enjoy in your daily life.
