Y'all. This session might take the cake for my favorite in-home session thus far in 2018. Here are a couple of reasons why. First, this is a repeat client of mine. I love that I get to document my families growing and meet their new nuggets! Second, can we talk about adorable kids? They have the best eyes and hair! Third, this kiddo slept.the.whole.time. The whole time. It might go down as one of the fastest sessions I've ever done. Fourth, being a mom of boys myself, I do love some brotherly love! And lastly, this is the perfect example of how to have a lifestyle newborn session with an older toddler. Little man did NOT want to have anything to do with pictures. My attitude towards that is, cool. Let's roll with it. There is no point in forcing a young child to sit and look pretty. That is not what they are made to do! So, in my sessions, I try to calm the parents nerves and say, "they'll get in some.. just wait.." What this meant for this family was him playing in his play room and bringing them all sorts of fun cars, toys, and requesting snacks. But, it was the inquisitive nature of this toddler that kept me snapping pics. He lovedddd looking at his little brother. By the end of the session, without prompting I might add, I had little brother in a crate and big bro just walks over and starts pointing at his toes. He was saying how little his toes were and was trying to count them. Then, he sat, and compared his toes to little brothers. It was a.dor.able! And this is why I am a self-proclaimed "over shooter." If I had just stopped and packed up my camera, I would have missed all of this! Love it!! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Thank you, Andres family, for continuing to allow me to capture these moments of your life!
