So this week, Master 5 has perfected the art of whistling... and he has been practising over and over... and over! This kid is so determined, he whistles from the moment he wakes up, during breakfast and getting ready, and during the entire car trip to school. By the time we get to school, I'm white knuckling the steering wheel and clenching my teeth.
I get that he is proud of mastering this skill, and I'm proud of him too - but I'm just hoping he will move on to the next thing VERY shortly! The tuneless, high pitched whistle is keeping the puppy alert too - especially when she is meant to be sleeping -in waltzes Master 5... whistling... and the puppy says "I'm not napping - it must be play time!"
I remember when Miss 7 learned to whistle, she also learned to click her fingers at the same time - wasn't THAT a fun week!
Beautiful miss Sofia was absolutely amazing during her newborn session! At 17 days old I wasn't sure how sleepy she would be, but she snoozed for the entire session and was an absolute dream to work with!
Here are some of the favourites from the day, including a little "behind the scenes" of how we achieved the image with some super excited dogs:
Below is an example of how I often gets images of dogs posing with the baby. Normally the pups are WAY too excited to sit still when there is a newborn baby beside them who smells so good! So I do the two shots separately and then create a composite image in Photoshop, as per the finished image below this one:
