I found something special walking in the woods. No it wasn't the baby, it was the hollow tree.
The baby came later. In fact, over a year later.
I found the hollow tree during a walk in the woods and thought to myself that it would make a great place to stash a sleeping baby. I took a picture and waited for the day that a family member or friend would be able to supply me with the second part of the composite.
Problem was, he wasn't asleep.
He was asleep for the family shots and awake for the sleepy ones.
But what do you expect from a one month old?
But after much rocking and singing quiet little songs and a bottle, he finally drifted off to chase rabbits, even though he had to have his Mother's arm for solace. I was able to get the pose I wanted before he finally decided enough with the rolling around in the cold air.
Sorry buddy, but thank you for your cooperation!
