Tears. Huge crocodile tears. Fortunately, those tears were quickly followed by laughter and joy and love <3 When a session begins with tears from the star participant, it’s a bit scary for me as a photographer. No matter how adorable that child looks when they cry, mama does not want a full session of images with tears streaming down said child’s face. Lucky for me – or perhaps because of my winning personality ;P – I have never had a session where the child doesn’t warm up to the experience fairly quickly (knock on wood!) And warm up this girl did. We had so many giggles and hugs and sweet smiles that I could barely remember the girl who made that scowly face at me – fortunately I had an image or two to remind me…. I probably shouldn’t have started the slideshow at the Reveal Appointment with the unhappy ones – I thought they were adorable, but I totally scared mom! This session (which also included grandma) ended up being perfect. The light was gorgeous, the fall foliage was on point, and this family shows love so easily. They clearly delight in each others company and I am so glad that I was the lucky photographer that got to capture that love and light for them.
