lions, monsters, & april fools | los angeles baby photography

It's April 1st 2011. April Fools Day. A day of pranks, jokes, and all things silly and tricky! To be quite honest... April 1st has always made me a little apprehensive. Probably because I am quite possibly one of the most gullible, clumsy, and easily frightened  people on the planet. It's true. For example- my husband, after nearly 10years together, continues to jump out from behind every corner possible while "rawring" at me in a scary monster growl with his hand bent up claws. And even though I know it's coming... I still jump back and gasp in fear. After I recompose myself from the initial heartbeat-skipping scare... we both laugh as I tell him how to never do that to me again [which , let's be honest, we both know he still will.]. Another example that took place today- While video chatting with my father this morning, he informed me [in an urgent tone] that he received a phone call earlier from someone by the name "Lions", looking to speak with me. Now, I feel it necessary to explain that not only I have I not lived my parents in over 10 years, but I no longer live in South Florida either. Anyways, he wouldnt tell my dad what his call was in regards to, but instead gave him a phone number and asked that I call him back. So I took down the number. I couldnt get over how weird and "suspicious" this all seemed, so as I was about to pick up the phone and call... it dawned on me. "THIS IS AN APRIL FOOLS TRICK ISN'T IT?!?!" I exclaimed! My father's immediate burt of intense laughter led me to believe I was right. It had happened again. I was fooled. But I must say... dad did good this year. The number he gave me was to the Miami Metropolitan Zoo. Get it?!  Zoo... Mister "Lions". Hysterical.

Here's to wishing everyone a very Happy April 1st + Happy April Fools Day!

And just because posts are no fun without a picture or two... These six images of this adorable little guy were printed on canvas and hung just as they are shown below. His parents love him so so much and wanted to remember all the little details and important info about their newborn baby boy so we designed the outside edge of the canvas so that each one displayed a different fact about him at birth [name, weight, height, etc.]. It came out even better than I imagined and is simply stunning on their wall!
