This session made me laugh.
Mom is a local children’s photographer, who despite working with kids all day and knowing how it works behind the scenes, warned me that her son would hard to photograph.
Well of course he is ……for HER ! ( laughs out loud ! )
MOST photographers laugh about how we can’t work with our own kids . Its like a strange phenomena.
I cracked up when like every other mother who has a 2 year old , she really thought I was not getting any shots.
Meanwhile ……..I spent maybe 60- 90 minutes with them and got so many great pics I could not narrow them down .
I brought my little girl Alex and instructed her to just stand behind me and THROW things at him, leaves, twigs, imaginary objects. Those big grins you see are him laughing at the objects flying his way! Total heaven for a 2 year old !
This child was a JOY to work with…….and despite his mothers fears , he gave us everything we needed and MORE . I look forward to throwing more stuff at him during our next shootLOL !
Jennifer is actually one of our Female Factor Moms who despite her also being a local children’s photographer I plan to spotlight. As of late I’ve seen way too much women tearing other women down and I REFUSE to participate in it. Shes reminds me a lot of a younger version of me and I plan to do nothing but encourage and help her out – so please take some time and enjoy your first glimpse of Jennifer over at Simply Stroble !
