I have to confess … when this mom contacted me I was a little nervous. Three boys … all older than I would typically photograph (without a baby attached). Boys are notorious for having those awful cheese smiles and I guess having 2 girls I am not as able to relate to them.
But MOM saved the session because she didn’t care if the boys were perfect and posed. I proposed a mud session to her (which turned into a creek session) and she thought it sounded fantastic. I really can’t ask for more than a mom who is happy to let her kids get dirty for pictures!
And on top of that, these boys were fantastic! I didn’t even want to leave at the end I was so enjoying them. I suppose there are some benefits to photographing older children … they can have a conversation with you. I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did. 🙂
He spent the whole time in the creek collecting these, and then saved them all at the end.
