Photoshoots and Outtakes

Max & Bodhi donned ALL the knits for a chilly beach morning in January

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?!

Bumble Beanie by Tin Can Knits

Here are Max, Bodhi, and Emily in  all the knits from our latest collection

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!

Max was in fine form all morning giving us his famous 'blue steel' and whatever this adorableness is!

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!

When they were finally on the same page it was not a good one....

Max was particularly perturbed by this shot. Maybe we weren't getting his 'good side'?

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 strollers all bundled and warm. Instead we had them pose covered in woolies from head to toe. No babies were harmed during this shoot….much.

She may look inquisitive to the untrained eye, but mama knows that is one mad baby!

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!

    haha, hilarious outtakes! It’s tough to get photos of babies, for sure- but their cuteness is evident in every shot, outtakes or the winners!

    Such baby torture! They probably felt that their unhappiness should have been taken very seriously, but some of those faces–you have to laugh!

      Haha we generally do laugh (and then proceed to bundle them, feed them, change them, etc!). Life is tough for babies!
