I like to try to keep last-minute availability in my calendar, but sometimes some babies are born early and others late and sometimes there’s a hurricane 9 months prior which means a lot of babies are coming and I just don’t have the room. Gavin’s Dad emailed me when he was a week old asking if I could fit them in. I had availability a bit further out, which made us both nervous, so I was really glad when I was able to work it out to have them come in at Gavin’s 10 day mark.
The day before the shoot, one of my closest friends texted me “OMG! My cousin booked with you tomorrow!” The small world moments lately come every day (my kids’ camp bus driver turns out to be the nephew of an old friend of my father’s; my client from Sunday turns out to be my cousin’s girlfriend’s boss’ boss) and it makes things feel that much nicer when you connect for more than one reason.
So Gavin was already like family when they came. I think we chatted more than I worked during this session. Gavin’s mom asked me to do some different styling than my usual and I love the results. He was such a good baby! Slept the whole time and gave me a whole range of smiles. I really love his images.
Someday he’ll fit into Daddy’s Gi.
His 2 year old twin cousins were in this box 2 years ago!
Big brother in love.
