A piglet had a newborn baby photoshoot and we're obsessed with the results!
Oklahoma-based photographer Cashlie White, who typically takes photos of families, newborns and weddings, photographed a piglet named Dynamite who is just over 2 weeks old.
"I usually don't do pictures of pigs," White told "Good Morning America," noting this was her first pig photoshoot.
The 34-year-old photographer and mom of two said she got the idea to do a newborn piglet photoshoot after seeing a photo of Dynamite shared by her friend, Connie Hamilton. Hamilton breeds pigs like Dynamite for competitions.
White said taking photos of the piglet was just like taking photos of a newborn baby.
"She got a bath before the shoot and I used all of my newborn 'shoosh-ing' and swaddling tricks, just like a regular newborn session and she went to sleep in my arms!" White wrote on Facebook. "We kept her warm and the room quiet and she was OUT and in Hog Heaven! After the shoot she woke up and was on the run back to momma!"
"With any newborn session, I have a small little space heater ... kind of just keep them warm and cozy. And that's what I did with the pig," White said.
White shared the photos on the Cashlie Joy Photography Facebook page and said she didn't expect to receive such a positive reaction.
While White's family has a dog and bunny, she had never done a newborn photoshoot with an animal before.
White said she took a leap of faith over a year ago and quit her corporate job to become a full-time photographer. Amid the pandemic, her business has been affected but she has followed all of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines with any shoots and is ready to get back to business.
"We're trying the best we can, especially in Oklahoma, to get our lives back on track and, you know, get some type of normalcy," she said. "And it just looks a little different than it did before."
White said she hopes to keep spreading smiles with more photos of baby animals soon.
