Who's got the cutest little baby face? We’ll if you ask us, we'd have to say our nephew, Carter. In July, Millie Holloman captured our seven-month-old nephew on film. Pascal was unable to attend the photo shoot; he was busy acting as "private chef", putting together a great spread for a party that friends had asked him to help organize. I left the party set-up in his hands and headed over to The Learning Express on Oleander Drive, the first location for Carter's photo shoot. (We had requested permission to be there in advance, and the wonderful owners and team of Leaning Express elves graciously agreed to accommodate us.)
When I arrived, Carter's parents and his Nan were already there with several wardrobe changes, props, toys, a diaper bag, and more. His Uncle Trevor and Poppa were having more fun checking out the toys than most of the kids in the store. For some reason, Carter fell in love with a big-eyed plush lemur from the movie, Madagascar. Nothing doing, his grandfather had to buy it!
Then, Millie showed up and started working her magic behind the camera. I got to spend the afternoon behind Millie's shoulder, dancing, singing, making funny noises, playing peek-a-boo, and doing everything else I could to get Carter to laugh. It was such fun; Carter is a great audience. If you're a regular reader of this blog, then you know that Millie is my dear friend. We love riffing on each other's creative ideas, and she always graciously allowed me to suggest stuff while she was shooting. I'm proud to say that I came up with the book idea, and selected the titles (in under 10 seconds) off the bookshelves. I love it!
Tomorrow, we're headed to Buffalo to play with our nephew, Carter. We can't wait to see how he's grown. We'll see you next week!
