Katie and Matt used our services when they got married. Now it was time for some family portraits so of course they would contact us. We went back and forth on a good time but since the weather was getting cold fast and the light would soon be changing we were limited. However we were able to find a time that worked! We met at Queeny park since it was between both of our locations, this helped with how early they would have to be ready. We are always willing to meet out on location anywhere around the area so that it makes it less stressful for the families who have enough to worry about getting ready for a session. There was some rain moving in but we were going to get everything done before it hit us. Although David informed me that when I had him laying on the ground a rain drop got him in the eye. But he quickly brushed it off and kept smiling…or laughing actually. Katie and Matt told him that to get the best smile pretend that someone is tickling him so he will laugh. I couldn’t stop laughing behind the camera because every time I went to take a photo David would giggle. It was amazing! His little brother Johnny also had a great smile but he was so interested in the stuff around him outside that we had to work a bit harder for his grin. The boys were so great that we were able to get lots of different images, mom with each boy, dad with each boy, the family, the boys alone, the boys together – it is going to very hard for Katie and Matt to pick. The shy David that got out of the car was a very different kid by the time we were done, I think I have a new friend! The last thing we got was a photo of Katie and Matt together and as I went to take the photo I heard some giggling, but this time it wasn’t David, it was Matt. I guess that trick works for him too, I’ll have to have everyone do it from now on. Thanks for the tip.
