Ok, so what's not to love about shooting babies, right? Their sweet little rolly polly selves far outway the drool, the spitup, the incessant crying, and, of course the poop in rainbow colors that gets on all of our nice white backgrounds. I shot two sets of quadruplets for years, and they were wild children, cute, but wild, like tear my studio apart in 5 minutes kind of wild, so to say I was feeling a little trepidacious about shooting little six month triplets in the nether world of Gilbert was an understatement, but there I went. My sweet little hubby even packed me snacks for the trip, so long and far away is Gilbert.
But when I got there, I just fell head over heels in love with Makayla, Hanna, and especially little Shayne, pictured above with veterinarian dad Jamie. Aside from being an absolutely lovely person, Mom Staci is probably the most calm mom I've ever seen. Those kids felt so loved and cared for and cooed over, there wasn't even a possibility of a tantrum! While I was setting up, the babies were hanging out on this big overstuffed chair by the window, just smiling away at mom and dad. They just hung out and were soooo adorable and sweet and cuddly and cute. My youngest, T.T. is graduating from kindergarten this week, and being at the Schmidt's house made me want to have more babies!! Well, maybe not. Well, maybe...hmmm. I'll keep you posted on that one. I'd only be 107 by the time they reached high school.
