Last Saturday, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to snap a few photos of a handsome little guy at the Regional Parks Botanic Garden tucked away in the Berkeley Hills. Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce you to Gabriel :)

Trust me, it's not easy being a baby model. First, you have to wake up early in the morning. Then you have to sit in front of strange plants, in the cold, wearing more plants around your neck. And to top it off, you have to let a crazy photographer wave a giant camera in your face all morning. But baby Gabe was a pro. And with mommy and daddy within arms reach, unlimited "snackies" at hand, and Itsy Bitsy Spider Youtube videos, the portrait session was definitely a complete success.
