I had the pleasure of taking these gorgeous kid’s photos this weekend.
Th oldest is one handsome, very cool 13 year old. Actually I was kind of shocked that he was only 13…. definitely seemed much more like a 16 year old to me. Or perhaps this is just another revelation that I am getting old. Anyway, he was a trooper, getting out of bed at way too early of an hour for a teenager in the summer, let alone a teenager in the summer on a weekend but he didn’t complain once.
This little gal has got to be one of the most beautiful little girls I have ever met and was such a sweetheart.
And the littlest is a typical three year old little boy. I know three is all about becoming more independent, doing everything yourself and having your own ideas but I was amazed to see how grown up three is compared to two. I’ve have my share of two year old photo shoots lately and given my own 2, I pretty much know what to expect. Three is different. At three you can bet that they understand the bargain of cooperating for pictures for a surprise or reward afterward. And while they get it, they are still all about doing things on their own and in their own way. This little guy did a great job cooperating but also found many of his own spots where he wanted his picture taken, places where he wanted to explore and things he wanted to climb. It was very interesting for me to watch and try to take a deep breath as I’ll likely have two little boys climbing tall ladders, begging to go higher with no fear, next year. Anyway, he was so much fun and such a doll with those same amazing eyes that his big sister has.
And when we were done shooting, this little guy asked to take a picture with the brush that his mom was holding the entire time. We were kind of bewildered, but as I mentioned he’s three and with a three year old you just go with it. So I snapped a few shots of him with the brush and we continued on our way back to the car. This was not at all what he meant, however, and he was quite upset. After a little questioning we realized he wanted to be just like his mom 😉 and wanted to make someone smile by dancing and jumping up and down with the brush while I was taking a picture of THEM. Gina, this may or may not be what you looked like behind my back that morning
And the result – great job!
Thanks so much for letting me spend the morning with you.
