Story Behind the Photo

7 Dec

Setting: Baileyana Winery in San Luis Obispo’s Edna Valley

Time: Sunset

Backstory: The company I work for recently acquired some new staff members, so we needed some new group photos for our website.  Instead of hiring a professional photographer as we’ve done in the past, we went with a friend who had a nice camera and a little spare time.  I warned my colleagues that I had no childcare coverage for the shoot, so Seabass would have to come with me.  Expecting him to be a flaming nightmare, I was shocked that he was contented to munch Chardonnay grapes and observe our shoot from a picnic table.  Before everyone arrived, the photographer tested the light on shots of me and Seabass while my colleague Chanae made faces at him.  The result is a photo that encapsulates what it’s like to be mama to a precious boy of 18 months.
