And The Winner Is…

Posted on 18. Jun, 2009 by in Children, Portraits

I was very excited to start Addison and Sophie’s session. Their dad Danny had called a while back about getting his wife Eleanor a gift certificate to have their children come in and get their portraits made for her birthday. So Danny and I secretly played phone tag, and set up how the gift certificate should look, the message inside, etc. (Husbands, fiances, and boyfriends, I hope you’re paying attention…this is a birthday/holiday gift giving gold mine!)Howard5811

I’ll admit this session was HOT! It wasn’t really the temperature, but the humidity was a killer. Sophie and Addison were such great sports, and with a couple of cool off breaks they were ready go again. Toward the end of our session The Wiggles came out. The Wiggles in caHoward5816se you’re wondering is what happens when kids are made to stand still for an extended period of time. Yes, in the beginning it’s easy to be still, but as a big kid trapped in an adult body I can understand the need to wiggle from time to time. So to keep us on track I started the competition of the century between this brother and sister duo. When they split up for their individual shots I informed both that I was keeping score and who ever did the best won a prize. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not above bribery, especially if it works.
It was a tight race. Poses quickly came naturally, smiles were flawless, and suddenly our friend The Wiggles was gone. We have gorgeous stuff of these two, and they were a joy to work with.

Oh and in case you were wondering…It was tie. Everyone got a prize.
