We have learned that pictures can be deceiving. Last week we were scheduled for Cohen's newborn pictures. I was so excited to get those naked, folded baby pictures of him. Well Cohen had other plans! When we started to strip him down for his big photoshoot it became apparent that he had been making a large diaper all the way there. It was a doozy! We cleaned him up and proceeded to place him on the back drop. Poor guy was freezing and didn't like the idea of being naked at all. Next thing we knew he was peeing on the back drop! I was mortified! While I am trying to assure the photographer that I will dry clean all of her back drops and that I am sooo sorry, Cohen begins to poo. AHH! We quickly diaper him up again and decide to wait it out. Only Cohen is inconsolable at this point. We have not seen him this upset yet. I finally get him to a dull whine and decide to get him naked again. He ends up peeing on himself, and peeing on Steven. I am done. I officially have poo under my finger nails, Steven is now late for work, and Cohen is screaming.
Time is money for the photographer and we are taking up a lot of it...30 minutes in and not a single picture taken yet. Needless to say, Cohen filled all the diapers we brought with poo and we have run out of wipes. I decide we need to reschedule. It just isn't a good day for this....Clearly. The photographer says no way. "In 5 years of shooting newborns, it always works out", she says.
Well we got the proofs a couple of days ago and I can't believe it! SHE WAS RIGHT!
I must say you can't even tell it was a nightmare. I have decided I have to send her some kind of thank you. I am totally impressed with what she came up with. Check it out here:
Session ID: Cohen N
Now how do we choose what to order?
