Taffeta’s first photo-shoot is finally here!

Monday, June 20th, 2011

At only three weeks old Taffeta posed for her very first photo-shoot, proving that she really does have some extremely rare talents for one so small. For my first shoot I wanted to express how painful breast-feeding was in those early weeks but, at the same time, create a humorous image which has an air of stylised 1950’s advertising about it. Taffeta was determined to fall asleep on the job though and that’s how the second photograph came about (a lucky chance!). The first image is simply titled ‘Breastfeeding’ and the second ‘Babyfood’. Taffeta now has her own gallery on my website so there will be many more added to this series in the future!

Say No to Cute Baby Pictures

Just over nine months ago I had a great idea for a new series of photographs – there was only one flaw in my new photographic plan though – I needed a very small child as my subject. To be more precise I needed one of those tiny little nappy wearing humans we refer to as ‘Babies’. As there didn’t seem to be any such thing as a baby hire shop, I decided I had no choice other than to grow my own and, finally, many moons later, here she is!

Taffeta Alice Cecelia ‘Photogirl’ has already posed for her first shoot at the tender age of three weeks and I’ll be revealing the fruits of this session very soon – but for now I just wanted to make it VERY clear that I won’t be doing the usual cheesy fluff-covered vomit-inducing baby photographs expected of most photographers.
