while i've made myself a promise that i will not be one of those photographers that posts tons + tons of photos of my kid on my blog... the lil thing is going to have more photos taken of her than anything else i've ever documented probably. i'm secretly excited to have my very own model on hand to use for all kinds of photographic experiments i've been wanting to try out for quite some time. believe it or not, photographing babies is so much harder than it looks! there's all these photos of them sleeping so peacefully... but in reality they're often crying or hard to pose... it's a challenge to get them to look into a camera, or even lie or sit up straight without rolling right over. i did lani's mom's maternity photos back in November (which can be seen here)... + loved seeing + documenting the little beauty that was inside that belly just a few months ago. introducing lani... here's seen at two months old!
