Brooklyn 1st Birthday | Ailis

Brooklyn 1st Birthday

I always have an assistant for my sessions but for today’s session my assistant was on vacation. So I asked a friend to fill in. This wasn’t her first time on set with me. We actually did a birthday shoot for her fur baby, Talula a couple years ago. I think working with a little girl would be so much easier than a dog however this little one made us sweat. Ailis was not interested in our singing, dancing or food bribery. She was experiencing a major case of stranger danger and it was not helping the shoot. After some time allowing her to get to know us, she warmed up a little so we were able to capture her pictures. Even though we were drenched in sweat and had no voices left, you would never know she need coercing.
