Photography: Dreamy Baby and four Sleeping Chihuahuas

Just thought this photo looks gorgeous! But the making of this scene was almost impossible to achieve. You see…

Baby Matilda and sleeping Chihuahuas (click to enlarge)

This heartwarming photograph, of an eight-day-old baby nestling in for a sleep with four five-week-old puppies, was five hours in the making.

Photographer Richard Barry captured the endearing image after a stressful photoshoot in a room at the home of newborn Matilda’s family.

Mr Barry, 44, who specialises in baby portrait photography, said: ‘The objective was to get the baby and the chihuahua puppies all asleep on a beanbag at the same time. It is undoubtedly the most difficult photo I have ever taken

It took Mr Barry about 30 attempts to get all four pups onto the bean bag beside Matilda, without waking them or the baby.

He added: ‘The final image was captured in just two frames, and catches the moment Matilda leant in to one of the puppies. One second later the puppy woke up, and the shoot was over.’

I am  some how reminded of that verse in the bible that says:

It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. ~ Psalm 127:2
