If you want a really serious down to business never sarcastic photographer then I’m probably not your girl. Just sayin’…
I just loaded this session to start on their sneak peek and giggled the whole way through remembering how much fun we had. I’m not sure if the mom’s had that much fun but the kids did. For the most part. Jackson and Olivia are old pro’s when it comes to being in front of my camera but their cousins Lilly and Allie were in for a treat. Lilly, the older sister, was pretty much not interested in having me take her picture. At all. So we just let her kind of do her thing. Of course at that point baby sister Allie was happy but then her little tummy started feeling icky so then she got fussy just when Lilly decided I really wasn’t that bad. I mean, I had a cool stroller…and I let her bunny sit in it. That’s cool, right?
So here are three shots from when we convinced Lilly that she should be in the picture. You should know that prior to this Allie was having a bottle and Lilly was getting to push her bunny around in the stroller. So here they are, all in the same general area. All fairly happy. You can sort of sense that maybe Lilly isn’t crazy about the fact that Allie is in the stroller and she’s sort of trying to get it out to roll around again.
I had my son Eli with me as my assistant that day and his one job during this time was to make sure Allie didn’t fall out of the stroller. If she even moved a smidge he was to dive in and catch her. I was trying to keep Olivia in position looking at me and told her Eli would get Allie if he needed to but she kept feeling the urge to reach out and grab her. Mostly because by this point Lilly was pretty frustrated and was beginning to rock the stroller from side to side.
And finally we come to this. The stroller was shaking enough that Eli ran in to save the baby just as Olivia couldn’t contain her laughter anymore. Jackson is just amused at whatever Eli’s saying about being the baby-saver. And then there’s Lilly…who up until this point wouldn’t smile. Look at her now. She’s thrilled!
So see, we have tons of fun! Seriously! Honestly I really do love my clients and I love making them laugh and feel comfortable like we’re all just hanging out and I just happen to have a really big camera in front of my face. You get a whole experience when you use madigan.e.photography.
Also…no babies were harmed in the shooting of this session.
