my first session with maven went on for just over two hours. of course, it was not two hours of straight shooting as there was a feed and a few diaper changes in between. during this time, kruti and ryan had tired to get him down for a nap, but a nap was not something little maven was interested in. he was very cooperative with me during this time, however, nearing the end, he started to get a little fussy and i think he was finally ready for his nap.
i returned a week later for a second session. we had hoped that this time around that maven would be in nap mode and we could get some shot of him while asleep. when i got to kruti and ryan’s place, he had just finished his feed and he was wide awake. the first thing that struck me was how much he seemed to have grown in just one week! ryan’s mother eventually got him to sleep and we proceeded to start the session. while he did not stay asleep for a very long time, it was just enough.
kruti and ryan, thank you once again for allowing me the privilege of photographing little maven!
