Photography gives me the best excuse to meet up with friends! Not only do I get to be behind the lens, but I also get to catch up with the recent happenings in their lives. It's a win-win! Recently I had the opportunity to catch up and take photographs of one of my favorite families - Claudia, Mike, Mikey and the new addition to the family - Russell!
Oh my, what a difference a year can make! This adorable family grew by one and that meant that I had one more kiddo to entertain. How do you keep a toddler and a ten month old entertained at the same time? Well, you have to bring all the tools in your kit! We brought out one of the most popular tools - bubbles! Who doesn't love chasing and popping bubbles?
When it comes to photographing kids, sometimes you have to throw your game plan out the window! Before I begin any photo session, I usually write down and plan out all the different poses I would like to capture. However when you have a shy, hungry, or sleepy child, you need to switch gears! Since Mikey had no intention of slowing down for our session, I made sure to include fun poses and took advantage of any moment that he did slow down. For me, the best photographs are the ones with genuine emotions and I think we got them here!
Thanks to Claudia, Mike, and their two little tikes for having me take photographs! I can't wait to see what surprises next year will have in store for us. I have a funny feeling I'll be chasing two kiddos around next year and I wouldn't have it any other way! Until next year!
