Another year is close to wrapping up and I have really enjoyed the photography - looking back I feel like I've enjoyed this year's portraits more than usual. Of course I'm trying to figure out why that might be - maybe it's because I have the absolutely nicest clients. For example, these sweet little guys:
I've loved meeting this guy for photography since he was just turning one year old.
He loves to pose for the camera and I love telling him jokes!
Every year he gets a birthday portrait holding last year's birthday portrait (and so on) - I love this fun idea that his mom does such a great job with.
So we have the super happy-to-pose brother, and then we have the brother who needed a little more time to get comfortable before he was ready to smile - which also honestly feels so good to me because I love it when little people open up. We tried a bunch of fun games, and eventually it all came together with some blocks and jokes from his big brother.
Yay! I never want people to settle for less than the real smiles, so to me it's so rewarding when the silly tricks and games work and really make babies happy!
Thanks so much to their mom, who I really enjoy getting to talk with, for bringing me her sweet boys for portraits! Happy birthdays!
