A Photo Shoot with a Cheeky Bird and Tammy!

April 18, 2009 - Magnolia and Tammy Callis
Photo taken by Ms. Jen with a Nokia N95.

Sat 04.18.09 – Ever since Tammy saw Mary Tsao’s fabulous photo of her pregnancy that I favorited on Flickr, Tammy asked if we could do a photo shoot with her and Magnolia (aka Bird) before the new baby arrives. Given that Tammy is now in the last 2-3 weeks of her pregnancy, I have asked her every couple of days the last two weeks if she would like to do the photo shoot today?
It has never been the right time, until late this afternoon when Tammy and Bird showed up at my door all dressed up to go to a play. It was not quite yet the ‘golden hour’ but in the shade between the apartment buildings the color and lighting was just right for my Nikon FM3a. We took half a roll of Agfa slide film at that Jason Schupp had given me last year with Bird performing admirably and taking good photo art direction.
When I pulled out my Nokia N95 to get a few digital stills, Bird started to act up. Whether it was being so good for the previous 10 minutes or whether it was the appearance of my tried and tested Nokia camera phone, but Bird started to goof off. The above photo was the best of the photos from my Nokia, the best in a good cheeky way. Go Bird Go!
