I'm going to be down right honest. When my good friend contacted me about doing a session with her two wee lil ones I felt confident...overly confident to be exact. I have three kids myself so I thought to myself "I know how to get kids to smile, I know to let them play for awhile then try to get some pictures of play and afterwards try a lil more eye contact with the camera". I came in to the shoot unprepared. That's right I am a mom to three kids so why didn't I come armored and strapped with 5 different kinds of candy, balloons, stickers, toys whatever is needed to help give them some incentive to crack those gorgeous smiles. Next time I will know. I have learned my lesson.
We decided to go St. Pat's Park in South Bend. It was close by and they had some really cute areas to shoot. I have not been there in years and years so I had forgotten what a pretty park it is.
This is "G". He's two..he's adorable and he knows it. He knows he's just got to spread on a lil charm and he's pretty much golden. Almost everytime I tried to get G's attention he would turn the other way. And rightfully so, he's two and he's too busy to stop and chat with this crazy lady with a large camera when there are swings to swing on, slides to slide on, and barns to play around at.
So G didn't want much to do with me. But towards the end I think he started to warm up to me so after getting home and realizing I got some really good shots but I really wanted to capture that handsome, huge smile (the kind where there eyes disappear cause it looks like their cheeks just swallowed them up) I called up mom to see if we could have another session the following week and thankfully she agreed with no hesitation. So this week I came prepared......
Need I say more?? I got some more really cute shots of him this time. I think he is getting use to me.
And this is his equally adorable sister "B".
She's a little over 20lbs of straight chunky leg, squishy cheek goodness. She's a doll face.
As long as mama is around..
And these kids sure do love them some mama...
And their mama sure does love them..
