Thumbs up The Baby Photographer

The Smiths were unable to conceive children, and elected to use a
surrogate father to start their family. On the day the proxy father was
to arrive, Mr. Smith kissed his wife and said, "I'm off. The man should
be here soon."

Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby
photographer rang the doorbell, hoping to make a sale. "Good morning
madam. 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
That's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a seat."
After a moment she asked,
blushing, "Well, where do we start?"

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."
My, that's a lot of. . . 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 said quietly.

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."
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,"
That's right. Well, madam, if you're ready, I'll set up my tripod so that
we can get to work."

Oh yes, I have to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It's much too big for
me to hold very long. Madam? Madam?...Good Lord, she's
