"I have a great idea for a picture" He says this while proudly standing next to the largest pumpkin I have ever seen in my life.
I say : "You want me to put your baby on that pumpkin don't you?"
He shakes his head yes and grins real big.
Eric, this is for you :)
I don't remember how much the pumpkin actually weighed, but it was large enough that the 2 of us could not lift it. Just to move it 5 feet we had to scoot it onto a towel and pull it across the floor. I love when clients have their own ideas to incorporate into a shoot. It's got to be the hardest newborn shot I've ever gotten... I won't tell you how long it took us, but trying to get a newborn baby to fall asleep on a cold hard pumpkin had me sweatin' like I was in a yoga class. Kudos to dad for the cute idea.
