OK, I'll admit it. I was nervous, anticipating this photoshoot the other day.

I haven't been nervous on my way to a photoshoot in a long time. It was kind of exciting, actually. I had this nervous energy bubbling on my way there... just thinking of all the different moving parts.

But see, the thing is, I realized the very coolest thing while I was there.

It's like I've been training for this, guys.

But I should back up.

I still stand by my decades-held assertion -- that babies under a year old are more comfortable indoors for photoshoots. It's just the truth.

The wind and the light filtering through trees outdoors is really distracting to babies and it's hard for them to be themselves outdoors.

But there's a global pandemic!

I can't take pictures of babies in their homes for the foreseeable future.

So I needed to figure out a way to do this. I decided to go for it. I decided it was time to take my seventeen years of in-home infant photography experience and combine it with my seventeen years of outdoor minishoot experience and attack this idea with gusto.

I made a couple of videos about my cleanliness/safety precautions (here) and the way I do my baby-session-shooting-with-a-mask-and-gloves (here) if you're curious...

And guys?

It works.

So I have a thing now!

I made up a thing.

A social distancing outdoor baby minishoot!

This incredible little person was scheduled to have his newborn photos done before Covid19 arrived... and then we had to keep rescheduling him.

And now he's 18 weeks old.

But I'm so glad we got him documented and we didn't wait any longer!

Time marches on, coronavirus or no coronavirus.

Babies are growing! Cheeks are getting chubby... wrists are getting rolls... elbows are getting dimples...

And mamas and daddies are squeezing their babes.

But I can document them from far away, with a mask on. My zoom lens is gooooood.

I'd be honored to talk to you about documenting your tiny person (or people) during this strange time.

I promise I'll do it safely, and grandma and grandpa will be grateful.

Let's use the mild weather this spring and summer to get those littles documented! Once it gets chillier this fall we're really going to have to bundle the babes up...

Think your small person needs one?
