Baby photography is a funny thing. Sometimes it takes on a mind of its own. I will have something in mind and as mom adds in a few personal touches and baby’s personality starts to shine through, what I envisioned turns into something totally unique. I wondered how these images would turn out with the eclectic styling. A favorite shirt and hat mixed with rustic vintage pieces and my love for moody lighting ..not your everyday baby portrait. And then I saw them and I loved them. Seeing little Hudson here like this (especially in his favorite hat) reminds me of Maurice Sendak and “Where The Wild Things Are”. Hudson wasn’t really a “Wild Thing”, he did want to walk and explore everywhere. But seeing him here in his hat I can imagine the box is a boat and he is sailing off to another world full of fanciful creatures. Welcome to the world of little boys!
