"Oh, gosh! It's picture day. I'll just make a cute banner real quick while I get my three daughters ready for pictures. And my own make-up done. No biggie," said Super-Mom.
Seriously, she showed up to the session with this adorable pennant banner. And make-up on. (People who know me, know that it is a rare occasion if I have my hair AND make-up done on the same day. I am simply in awe of her.) Not only can she do all that, she's nice, too! Like, really, really nice. You can't help but like her. I'm surprised the pennants didn't combine into some kind of cape.
Anyway, she had seen something similar to this banner on Pinterest, and whipped it up quick the morning of the session. It totally made the photos. How cute are these ladies!?!?
Can you believe these kiddos? Look at them! So perfectly sweet, and while attention spans didn't last the full hour, it wasn't even necessary. These kids were so loving to their new baby sister, and they loved being photographed with her. Wow. They're doing something right!
This photo session was on location, at their home. (Oddly enough, their neighbor is another client of mine. Weird, huh?) Anyway, with four kids, and getting photos done during the week, everyone was much more relaxed and comfortable in their element. Not to mention their favorite snacks at the ready. Including special treat, dice-shaped suckers as their (well-deserved) reward for taking such beautiful photographs. Don't you think?
This little guy not only was perfectly adorable, but had such personality! He (and his mom and dad) came to see me for his one year old pictures.
As we played and took photos, mom and dad continued to mention the things he liked. So, I thought we needed to somehow include all those sweet memories. And, viola! This cute little photo art was born!
These three cuties came to the studio a couple of weeks ago. I LOVE how these came out! We were trying to match a picture of the youngest to similar photos taken at the same age of his older siblings. I think we got it! The older two kids were so enthusiastic and eager to help. They loved using my toys to make little brother smile. So sweet.
Their mother is pretty on top of things. Three kids, and said she wanted to use a shot from the session for a Christmas card photo. In August. She is my hero. I am a photographer and I still can't manage to get a shot of my kids before Thanksgiving.
