I just heard on the radio that we’ve gotten more rain in April this year then we have since 1909! It has been crazy. This particular client was hoping for outside pics, but after switching the date a couple of times, we decided the rain just wasn’t going to stop. So, here are our indoor pics. The kids did great and it was a nice session.
The grandma here in this photo said to me, “This is the best gift EVER!” That is a wonderful compliment for me, but I definitely have to agree. One of her children got her a gift certificate for family photos when all 6 of her children were in town all the way from Canada and California to Michigan. It was a beautiful snowy morning and I hope they are overjoyed when they receive their discs.
Family photos can often be both a fun and stressful experience at the same time. Sometimes children don’t cooperate and the parents get frustrated. The little boy in this photo was very well behaved, but just didn’t smile much and his mom said he just really isn’t a smiler. Anyway, we got a couple nice grins out of him, one giant smile, and the parents ended up being very please with the pics! Whew, that little guy made me work for it!
I always say, 18 months through three years old (boy) is the hardest to photograph. This is fine and a challenge I feel ready for every time. However, I think parents often get discouraged and a bit frazzled during these sessions. This little guy was just like all the other children his age, on the go! We did a few different “poses” that were more fun for him and I’m hoping the parents are pleasantly surprised because I think they turned out great!
