This session was so enjoyable- and without stress. The two little boys were placid and carefree, which made for a relaxing photo shoot without constraints for time. It was a beautifully warm day on Saturday, so we could do some barefoot shots, and walk along without freezing! As mentioned in the sneak peek, the big brother brought his favorite little toy guitar, and it made for some great images, showing his little free spirit! Carla also brought some outfit changes for her sons, which always makes for some unique photos. I highly recommend both of these ideas to any clients- bringing a favorite toy to show the full personality of your child, as well as a few outfits or even just shirt changes can really help to bring the pictures to a new level. Allotting enough time to let the children play and just be their natural selves makes for a stress-free experience (as seen in Sam's post). I usually recommend approximately 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hrs, depending on the children or couple. We spent about an hour on Saturday taking these pictures, and Carla and her Mom made it an enjoyable time. I even snuck in a few quick photos of "Amma" with her two little grandsons! So sweet.

I recommend scheduling soon for your Easter/Spring pictures. I'm accepting bookings on Saturdays and weekday afternoons, so feel free to email me with dates that you prefer: betsyphoto1@gmail.com. I have 2 packages to choose from, with the ability to customize to your needs.

Don't forget to leave your guess on the location of this shoot- leave your answer in this comment section, or the area on the previous post. The winner will be drawn Tuesday evening.

Thanks again to Carla and Judy for a great session!
