Amber and I went back and forth in many e-mails trying to nail down the perfect date and time for their family pictures. Once we nailed it down, naturally, the stress of picking out a cohesive look for the family begins. Seriously though, this is probably one of my favorite parts.. having my clients reach out and value my advice and just trust me to provide them with these special memories. She showed me the dress she was planning to wear and we went back and forth about the boys' attire, and by the time the session actually got here, I felt like I had known them forever. I love that.
I have a healthy respect for moms who book an hour session with their kids. Don't get me wrong, I love it. I think memories are so important, but can I be honest? I chickened out of a full hour session and booked a shorter one for my own family portraits because the stress of expecting my kid to hold it together and not act like world's biggest banshee for a whole hour was too daunting.
Caleb was a dream. He's nine months old, it wasn't warm despite the sunshine, and this kid rocked it. Of course we had to become friends first, but luckily for him, I have a little one not too much older and I'm used to acting a fool (with a side of fart noises) and we were set. Look at those baby blues and those sweet, little teeth! Ah!
Here's a few more of my favorites from my time with the Horn Family.
