I can hardly believe it’s been three months since little Quincy joined our family. My how time flies! She’s getting so big and full of expressions! It wasn’t long into the session before Quincy had her first baby meltdown of the day (being a model is HARD work!) so I set up my laptop, hooked up my hard drive and put on some soothing Kenny G music which usually calms babies down. However, Grandma informed me that even at the early age of 3 months, Quincy has a very particular taste in music and preferred a little Lady Gaga over Kenny G. I didn’t believe her so, to prove her wrong, I turned on some Lady Gaga, thinking that Quincy would continue to have her meltdown, thus postponing the session until she calmed down. Oh but how I was wrong! Grandma quickly picked up little Quincy, snuggled her tight and started bouncing her to the music and surprisingly Quincy calmed right down! Who knew Lady Gaga was the new thing in children’s music! HA! So for the rest of the session, we played some of Quincy’s favorite songs like “Poker Face,” “Just Dance,” and “Telephone.” Good call Grandma! 🙂
These are some of my favorite shots from the session, including a 9-up wall collage that I’m going to talk my sister into hanging in the nursery…WAY to cute NOT to! 🙂 Stay tuned for more images of Quincy in the upcoming months. I learned some new tricks at After Dark, a photo conference I attended last week in Minneapolis, that I want to try out on Quincy the next time I’m in Iowa. I love having a little model of my very own!
