This is the happiest baby I've ever photographed. Consequently, it was the easiest baby photo shoot I've ever done. Usually baby photo sessions consist of waiting around for the baby to stop crying.

I'm starting to note that mellow unfussy happy babies are the product of mellow unfussy happy parents. This baby has a drool-soaked pink top - her parents were unfussy enough not to bother to change her out of it for photos. And I didn't mind either - the drool made the color a deeper shade of pink, which was better for photos.

It probably also helped that the photo session was on the (naturally lit with lovely ambient light) home patio - though it was her first foray onto the patio, the baby was sitting in a familiar high chair, and provided with an array of familiar toys.
