I have to say, I thought that it was a nice idea from the moment I read about it, but it was really amazing to see it in action once we were on "set." The photo shoot was held at a private residence in San Diego. The staff could not have been more nice or more welcoming. I am seriously an even bigger fan of Infantino products now that I have met the incredibly sweet and sincere people behind the brand. And it was something else to see so many babies playing together and interacting... different shades and abilities... each shining in their own way... parents visiting and proud of their little ones. It was really a neat day.
Finley was an angel. We got there super early and were even invited to eat lunch with the staff (seriously, they were really nice, I'm tellin' ya), and she was all smiles and being her happy self. As we waited for her "call time" I knew that sister had to be getting tired. And sure enough after I changed her into her outifit for pictures, girlfriend put that little thumb in her mouth and was out like a light.So I offered to let someone else go before us and let her sleep for a bit.
Okay, so part 2 of this little story goes like this: it was a "wrap" on Finley, we were on our way out, and I said something like, "Hey, if you need an extra toddler for tomorrow's shoot, I have a super cute 2 year old at home (ha ha)." And then they said, "Really? Oh my gosh, yes, we need a 2 year old! Would you mind coming back tomorrow?"
Fast forward to the next morning: Here's Liam strapped in the car and watching Marmaduke on the way down to SD.
And since the shoot was so quick and we had a bit of a drive ahead of us, we made a stop at the playground where Mommy had a little photo shoot of her own...
Overall, it was a great experience. Something fun and unexpected. Met some really nice people and got to see how things like this go behind-the-scenes. Oh, and the first picture of one of my kiddos popped up on the Infantino homepage. So if you just happen to pop over to infantino.com you might see her sweet little face.
