Life with Maya…….. I’m not really sure how Maya is already 9 months old. I ALWAYS get the statements of, “oh you must have hundreds of pictures of her.” The answer is, yes I do. But she is also my hardest subject to photograph. I tried 3 times for a studio infant session and ended up using images when she was 1-2 months for her birth announcements. To her, I am mom. Not a “stranger” per se, that is keeping their distance and photographing from afar. I am comfort, milk machine, transportation vessel, and playmate.
Her 9 month old photoshoot was by far the hardest especially since she is now crawling. I tried for about 3 minutes before her dad arrived to put her down, back up far enough to photograph her but close enough to grab her if she decided rocks might taste good.
In the end, these 3 out-takes, are my absolute favorites.
