Sometimes babies don't want anyone but mommy to be the ones that touch them, and that's ok! Taking my time and playing with them and earning their trust is only a small fraction of what it means to be a children's photographer. Sure there will be babies and kids I don't win over, but that dose not mean I wont get the smiles mom and I are both looking for! But it also opens things up for the cute unexpected images that come when your just playing and no longer focusing on getting that "perfect" shot.
This little lady wanted nothing to do with me. She would let me play with her from afar, but in the end, it was all hand off and mom to the rescue! Mom wanted me to showcase those beautiful two teeth coming in and some milestones! We have had so much rain, it was amazing to get outside with this beauty and have some fun!
