Heaven’s blessings

These are dear college friends of me and my husband.  They have been through a lot, and this little girl is an answered prayer to say the least.  We are so happy for them and their new little one that was born a few days after these photos were taken.  Congratulations!

The perfect shot

Oftentimes, we as photographers and parents are hopeful that the session will present “the perfect shot.” On the day of the shoot, you are prepared. You have your camera and lenses ready or the perfect outfit was selected and ready to go. Then you wake up and your child is feeling ill! It’s up to the parent whether to reschedule, and I know from past experience that it’s always best to do so. Ill children don’t feel up to doing anything except going back to bed. It’s hard on the parents and photographer because you have envisioned getting “the perfect shot.” Often times, our reality fails to live up to our fantasy. It not only happens to parents, but it happens to me, too! I don’t leave every session feeling great (such is the predicament of working with kids three and under). However, there are times when I get home, plug my camera card in, and Voila! I see a beautiful shot that I didn’t even realize I got because of the chaos that usually ensues during a session with a little one. 

I was excited to see this family again, as they were instrumental in getting my business and word of mouth referrals going.  There is a lot of pressure to perform because you honestly can’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for you.  Of course, their oldest little boy woke up sick!  I did get one that I liked of him, but then the show was over, and he went back to sleep.  His little brother and mom and dad were more than happy to sit for me, though.  I just love the little guy.  He is such a little lover boy, and I can’t believe how much he’s grown since his newborn session.
