Samantha Deschamps captured “Bunny Cheeks” during one of her fine art bunny sessions for babies eight to 12 months. “This baby is an expressive little girl with red hair, and I was able to capture many looks,” Deschamps says. “I absolutely loved her non-smiling gaze at the camera.” Around the Bend Photography is based in Monroe, New Hampshire, and specializes in fine art newborn, child, and high school seniors portraiture.
