What is the new but we don't know what you know and you still don't know what the linus do they do this a lot. Yes elinor surprise, which is pretty actually cool and when I saw that happen that you guys have worked together for so long and that you trust your teammates you trust what they're going to dio the additional living the additional nationality that came in in terms of where people are watching us from and how to say mother is the irish gaelic which is maher pronounced maher so we have this list of all the different ways that people say it so that what you're going to deal with people who are just joining us is an additional part of the card will be those words right you'll see you said that we're going to run this words in a beautiful text across the background behind the three flowers yeah and so once we've got the three flowers and niko and I will think about where they were going to have the words in slightly different colored tick store or whatever but that will just be we know dressing after yeah right it's this kind of big right I can tell it's him looks are beautiful well after having been with you for for several shoots like it's a really cool to feel the energy that you have especially when you know that you when you're happy with what what you've created with your team and you know that's that's what I want couple this morning I thought no pressure in you know, people watching and and you know look, you know further thirty years and I've been photographing babies it's so so rhea that we don't get we come out of something with an image it's really really really in fact if you count the number of times on one finger it's really yeah it's just thinking it's right yeah it's really really right yeah yeah so it's nice to know that we've got it and now the next two babies who were just it's important you know it will just be because you never know because you are seeing on the right you never know what next time will be no, I think that's something that's really cool that you've talked about is problem solving and tell us again about your you have no no fears about with the ability to create all right when you see your vision look I said this before you know weigh all lose sleep over a lot of things and I don't know what the audience makeup is a lot of you photographers or artists in some way or people who are interested in arts and crafts or or just people who really want to watch one of the chutes but you know we all worry about the things that we worry about that one of the things that I never worry about is uh the creative process and for instance I'm shooting the signs of this idea and you know, I talked to you about this yesterday was shot an image for a little yeah little baby for the scorpions star sign and it was a scorpion so when I first thought about tidy ecocide going through all the twelve what would be the most problematic and scorpio was probably one of those you know, nasty little critters and how we make a scorpion cute you've been to me it's kind of like oh, well that's quite thing I think about you know and so it never comes across this negative and that's what I really love about what I do and my own creative process it's like how do we this there's always a way is always a way and I love a good challenge in that regard well, I would think after you've been photographing for thirty years right here and so in order to stay energize yes right I mean having any problems like that for yeah, keep moving forward and love what you do and I love the subject matter, you know, people have said to me, oh, you know why babies and, you know, for thirty years so I couldn't think of a more important subject matter really? I just I honestly couldn't understand their amazing amazing do you see the grandma's face when we're a photograph we should peace? I couldn't see it over there but of I could I could when they would turn and look over here on the monetary side is so important like it's it's just a wonderful moment for them and the little african american baby who was here what was jeremiah jeremies mom was sitting here and her mom was sitting next to her coming here on the back with her does with the baby started a it's a really nice moment there it is to be a part of this and you know I just really love the whole sense of inclusiveness is great you love it so I've gotten word and that is that another baby is ready as soon as good on is ready so you're sure enzymes osha hands go everybody's worst along its smell was now we got two minutes keep us posted I um yes oh way will really show and icing on the cake which is what I really love well let's go in while we're waiting and you have to talk I mean people really care to don't wash these people are very curious don about well materials very womanizing and on dh just what these things are made of for this particular shoot pigs this's the new this plan plan oh right she could play on the pig most of its so called gansa okay that ninety percent of it on dh then there's a little bit of polyester against for a little bit of twenty people in there cream one drink this one is oh silk and I've had painted the ages of this one and then I don't present oh yes on dh ironed all these strips ahead scooter before she got on the plane to come over here just small jobs just took in the whole day and probably watching and don't increase thermal again what did you what did he deal and so they were also scrunched up so he had been I think just the whole day to do it by the way, the baby is coming. So they have put a state a spray starch on, and and I and it's sort of scrunched up like this and just put a sign on it. There's. An instant plate, beautiful, I notice there, below. Come, now. We're really getting leon. I think everybody got a little double sided types around the plastic cup toe. Hold the pedal, very high tech.
