Hunter, Uncategorized PHOTOSHOOT – BEHIND THE SCENES 24 February 2011

We did a photoshoot when Hunter was 1 week 6 days old (about 2 weeks ago). Apparently babies photograph best within their first two weeks of birth, because it’s when they’re a lot more docile and sleep most of the time. Well, that’s the idea 😉 In reality, the kerfuffle and shifting him this way and that kept him awake and pretty fussy.. so I had to keep breastfeeding him every 15 mins or so to calm him down! But it all worked out and we got some pretty nice photos.

Anyway, here are some behind-the-scenes shots that we took. Sometimes I reckon behind-the-scenes stuff is more interesting… has more character IMHO!


The only photo you’ll see of me breastfeeding, LOL. Nah, I posted
this because I reckon Chris looks rather delicious here 😛

Me still with a bit of a booty. That pesky last 2-3KG will take awhile to lose, unfortunately!

Hunter, the center of attention 😉

      As in you take the photos yourself, or pick his clothes? We picked the clothes and shots for Hunter but it was a professional photograph cos we suck at it 😉

    Aww.. it’s cos they are still wrinkly from the birth, which they seem to lose after a month! =)

      yeah, and they sleep a lot so much easier to pose this way and that! Apparently at around 2 months they just scream the whole time and not easy to photograph, heh

    So lovely!!!

    i cant wait to see the final pics 🙂 i love Hunter’s eyes 🙂 My friend in Boston has also a baby and she made pics at babies toy’s r us and they were so lovely as well. Enjoy your baby because he will grow up really quickly and make him wear as many clothes as you can because some days after, he just can’t wear them anymore and you will feel frustrated then ! one of my nieces, Mathilde just celebrated her 9th birthday…I can still remember her as a baby when i took care of her and changed her diapers… and the last one Emma, is 2 years old, she speaks perfectly French for her age while before she was just a baby who tries to learn how to walk… Time flies…

      That’s what I always hear, that they grow up so quickly! As it is, it’s been a month and he’s changed so much already… 🙂
