    Default Babies & Photography

    Enjoy this. Got this in an email.

    >>"Good morning madam. You don't know me, but I've come to..."
    >>
    >>"Oh, no need to explain. I've been expecting you," Mrs. Smith cut
    >>in.
    >>
    >>"Really?" the photographer asked. "Well, good! I've made a
    >>specialty of babies."
    >>
    >>"That's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a
    >>seat.
    >>Just where do we start?" asked Mrs. Smith, blushing.
    >>
    >>"Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on
    >>the
    >>couch and perhaps a couple on the bed. Sometimes the living room
    >>floor is fun too;
    >>you can really spread out."
    >>
    >>"Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn't work for Harry and
    >>me."
    >>
    >>"Well, madam, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But
    >>if we try several different positions
    >>and I shoot from six or seven angles, I'm sure you'll be pleased
    >>with the results."
    >>
    >>"I hope we can get this over with quickly," gasped Mrs. Smith.
    >>
    >>"Madam, in my line of work, a man must take his time. I'd love to
    >>be in and out in five minutes,
    >>but you'd be disappointed with that, I'm sure."
    >>
    >>"Don't I know it!!" Mrs. Smith exclaimed.
    >>
    >>The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio of
    >>his baby pictures.
    >>"This was done on the top of a bus in downtown London."
    >>
    >>"Oh my god!!", Mrs. Smith exclaimed, tugging at her handkerchief.
    >>
    >>"And these twins turned out exceptionally well when you consider
    >>their mother was
    >>so difficult to work with." The photographer handed Mrs. Smith the
    >>picture.
    >>
    >>"She was difficult?" asked Mrs. Smith.
    >>
    >>"Yes, I'm afraid so. I finally had to take her to Hyde Park to get
    >>the
    >>job done right. People were crowding around four and five deep,
    >>pushing to get a good look."
    >>
    >>"Four and five deep?" asked Mrs. Smith, eyes widened in amazement.
    >>
    >>"Yes", the photographer said. "And for more than three hours, too.
    >>The mother was constantly
    >>squealing and yelling. I could hardly concentrate. Then darkness
    >>approached and I began to rush
    >>my shots. Finally, when the squirrels began nibbling on my
    >>equipment, I just packed it all in."
    >>
    >>Mrs. Smith leaned forward. "You mean they actually chewed on your,
    >>eh...equipment?"
    >>
    >>"That's right. Well madam, if you're ready, I'll set up my tripod
    >>so
    >>that we can get to work."
    >>
    >>"Tripod??" Mrs. Smith looked extremely worried now.
    >>
    >>"Oh yes, I have to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It's much too
    >>big for me to hold while I'm getting ready for action."
    >>
    >>.....Mrs. Smith fainted!!
