Sometimes the best models are the youngest. And the cutest. Especially when they are one of your own.
This is Wyatt, #4 in the grandchild chain if you’re counting.
The inspiration for this were the ones I did of brother Leo and cousin Lucas way back in 2013.
I didn’t realize I was to shoot this particular image, so the same style prop wasn’t available. We substituted a planter instead. In hindsight, I’m glad the image was a little different from the first.
Simply lit and with the black side of a 5-1 reflector used as background, some texture and color were added in post. Babies need very little retouching. You just have to work fast!
