This little one was due at the end of 2010 and had the grace to show up just in time for mom and dad to get a great tax deduction (and a beautiful baby!). Born on Dec 31, Mr A is my first newborn client of the year and can I tell you how much fun I had during his shoot? His mom is a small business owner like me and we had already bonded during her maternity shoot (ie, me making her tromp through high grass at 8 months pregnant!!). We had a grand time changing props, getting him to sleep, exchanging mom stories and cajoling the dog to join in on the fun. Aren’t they a beautiful family?
