The weather has been so weird lately. Raining in the morning and nice and sunny in the afternoon. It’s nice that things are turning nicer by the end of the day, but it makes it really hard to figure out if sessions should go ahead or not!
That being said, Little Elek made my life super easy during his session, as not only was he super adorable, but he was also pretty darn patient for a one-year old!
Wow, where do I even start with this darling little one?! I mean, seriously, Cigi has been my amazing little model since she first came in for her newborn session. She rocked so many backgrounds, headbands, and outfits that I have used her photos time and time again for both my photography business and Prop Shoppe business. In fact, she modeled our number one seller over on the prop shoppe and I definitely think it’s success is partially thanks to her!!
Family sessions with little ones can sometimes be a little nerve-wracking for parents. Worrying about whether or not their tiny humans are going to cooperate and have fun during the session, or just have a tantrum. And then if the latter does happen, will they just be done for the entire session, or will they be consolable and come back around? It’s definitely stressful and can make any parent a little anxious. Luckily though, I’m pretty darn good with kids and babies and toddlers tend to like me (fingers crossed that I am not jinxing myself for my upcoming toddler-filled sessions). And that means I am normally able to comfort little ones and make sure they have a great time during their session. And hey, when all else fails, there is always good old fashion bribery (and there’s nothing wrong with that)!
So with all of that said, it didn’t surprise me when little Owen turned out to not be a really big fan of being told what to do during the McNally’s family session.
Little Baby Jonathan got a bunch of brand new outfits just for his session. In fact, I was finishing up multiple items late into the evening before his shoot. But the late night and extra sewing was oh so very worth it as this teeny dude was so darn cute and such a trooper during his session!
Oh my goodness, how could I have possibly forgotten to post this wonderful session with Henry and is awesome parents, Emma + Scott?! I knew I had issued it to them before hitting publish on this post as I was just so swamped with editing that I didn’t have time to wrap up blogging at the time (and of course didn’t want them to have to wait while I got my writing inspiration), but I didn’t realize just how long it had been since I actually finished this up. Well, long story short, I am (finally) sharing this wonderful lifestyle session and that is what really matters … right?!
