A couple of weeks ago, photographer Christine Szeto came to our home for a family photo shoot. She’s a marvelous photographer, a real artist, who uses only natural light. She was able to get smiles galore out of Mateo and captured his personality perfectly. It helps that Mateo is a total ham. Take a look at some samples from the shoot at her blog.
I’ve actually been considering getting Mateo into baby modeling. I’m biased, but I think he’s very photogenic, and right now mixed-race babies are incredibly popular in advertising and especially catalogs. If anything, it will be a way to start his college fund.
However, I’m not sure if I’m up for carting Mateo around to photo shoots and casting calls. I’d much rather stay home and take a walk in the park with him. There’s so little time that I have with him while he’s little, and I don’t want to waste any of it.
