We photograph a few schools around the area each year. When we are at the schools we meet many children but don’t often get to meet the parents. We try to get the best expression from each child and hope that the family loves the result. Carol called our office after giving birth to her son because we have taken photos at her daughter’s school. She loved the results so thought we would be the best place to call for a newborn session. This was such a delight to hear because when those school families come into the office we get a chance to meet everyone – that’s just a great experience for us. Just like all newborn sessions with family photos as well as sibling images we have to roll with what we are given. We started off with some family poses and big sister did amazing! She stood, smiled and was ready to pose. However after those first few images she thought she was done so we just rolled with it and worked with Louie a bit. He gave us some really great newborn images, since he was only 9 days old he really let us do anything to get that perfect pose. We tried again to get some photos of Louie with his big sister but she was really just ready to head to school to see her friends. Dad took her to school while mom stayed at the office watching her sweet boy sleep like a perfect angel for the rest of the session. We know it is hard to get those older siblings to work with the demands of a newborn session so it’s great that we got some perfect family photos right at the beginning. Luckily this family went with a digital option for the photos because they are going to have a hard time narrowing down the ones they like since there are so many great ones. I had a blast working with this wonderful family and I’m sure we will see them again.
