Guys, when I say I had to work for these smiles… I mean I REALY had to W O R K for these smiles!
I pulled out all the stops for this kid. And made a complete fool of myself doing so. So rest assured mama’s out there… I promise you that I will do my ABSOLUTE best to get your children to give me an authentic smile for you.
But…. brace yourselves here…. even if we only get serious faces, I am often times ok with that too.
Sometimes I’ve even found myself more drawn to the non smiling, non posed images. They are real. They are raw and authentic. They are often times the moments that our minds will remember in years to come.
Little ones playing with their beloved toys, or running through the weeds, or crying for their moms… all of it.
I want to capture all of it. So even though I got some great smiles out of little Henry here, I wouldn’t be sad if I didn’t.
Oh and I almost forgot, I didn’t tell you guys about how I got my Excursion stuck in the mud at the beginning of this session. Yup, that happened.
I made this poor mom (who was very pregnant at the time) climb out of my car and step into the mud… it was an epic mess. I’m so glad we could laugh about it!!!!!
It was pretty darn funny. 🙂
Thanks Kaitlin for going with the flow… and drudging through the mud with me.
