This was such an incredibly special shoot! Zarine, in all of her adorable 7 month self, met her grandfather for the first time the night before when her grandparents arrived from out of town. This is his first grandchild and he was so enamored. Zarine was also one of the happiest infants I've worked with. In general I've found that babies are just really happy, but she had me giggling the whole time (or maybe somehow parents who hire me just happen to have the happiest babies on the planet - I don't know). It was such a gift to be able to get parents and grandparents involved in this shoot. It was my last outdoor shoot of the season, and after freezing for bit in the gardens we moved on to take a few fun photos at the central public library. Enjoy!
