We knew the photoshoots for Max & Bodhi’s Wardrobe were going to be epic. I’ve done a fair number of photoshoots with children, like these ones, and they really never go as planned. It’s not a bad thing…just a fact of life! So when we decided to photograph 2 babies in woolies in 2 shoots…well you can imagine right?!
Day One: Baby Scheduling Conflict
On the first day we couldn’t seem to get 2 babies to be happy at the same time. First Bodhi was a mama’s girl who couldn’t be put down, and by the time she warmed up to the situation it was just about time for Max to have a nap. With artful angles, a lot of coaxing, breast feeding and bottles, and a few toys we managed to get the gems we were looking for amongst the thousands of photographs we took!
Bodhi was just starting to crawl and pull herself up on things which made things a tad tricky. We have a lot of shots of Max looking adorable and only half of Bodhi as she rocketed away!
Day 2: Babies Brave the Elements
The second shoot was an outdoor one, my favorite! The only trouble was that is was a freezing (but sunny) January morning and all those babies wanted to do was snuggle in their slings and strollersall bundled and warm. Instead we had them pose covered in woollies from head to toe. No babies were harmed during this shoot….much.
At the end of the day we had thousands of photos and everything we needed to finish our book! I can’t decide if the outtakes are cuter or the polished shots!
