This morning, I had my first family session of the year. The family & I have been in communication for several months preparing for our session, because we were awaiting a very special addition. Baby G made her debut the day before our family left town for Texas, so I had to wait a couple more weeks to meet her. At 3 weeks old, she was a pro! Her older brother was very excited to meet me, but his excitement didn't last long. I think he was a little shy or hungry or just, ya know, a 3 year old! Believe me, I know 3 year olds!! Kids are always unpredictable & that is what I love about photographing them. You never know what you will end up with. I give very little direction because I feel strongly that you will get the most genuine image of kids personalities if you let them be themselves. Today was no different. While preparing to take a picture of big brother holding his baby sister, he lifted his shirt "to feed her". It was such a natural, loving & real moment...I'm happy that I was able to grab it!
