The one that won’t make it into the magazine

Dear Max

After being on shoots for Living & Loving I realise that kids get grumpy, tired and “uncooperative” on shoots.

What I wasn’t counting on at our mommy blogger and ed’s pic shoot last weekend is that you would become one of “those” – the kid who just wasn’t having it, or buying into the new outfit, lights, studio and camera. In fact, you hated almost every moment, and if it weren’t for the five people jumping up and down in front of the camera, singing, calling and playing music, we might never have got the shots we needed.

As these things go (ie Murphy’s Bloody Law), you were niggly in the morning even before the shoot, and when you arrived at the shoot, I was having hair and makeup done, and didn’t want to leave my side, which was challenging with all your and my outfit changes. It was hot, you were bothered, and no amount of Flings or milk in a bottle could keep you happy for long.

But we had a good few minutes where you forgot the tragedy of being in a hot studion and being fussed over, and gave us fabulous toothy smiles. I’m sorry we went through this – good thing is you’ve forgotten, will hopefully forgive, and that the cool pics that we did get will be a fabulous addition to your barmitzvah or 21st photo album. 🙂

But I had to include the pic that won’t make the magazine… I think you’ll see why.

Afterwards, once you were out the clothes, you ran around the studio in your nappy, dancing to music, charming everyone and even crashing the next shoot when you went to sit with the next mommy and child when they were being shot. Too cute you are.
