Some kids are quiet, happily observing the world, taking everything in and going at their own pace. Others are full of personality, know exactly what they want, and live their life accordingly. L is definitely the latter. I've been blessed to know this family for a couple years now and I've watched L turn into a fun little lady.
She found her voice and a full vocabulary very young, which was probably the most adorable thing EVAR.
Due to unique circumstances, my two littles joined us for this session. They all know each other, so that made things easier. While I was shooting photos of J (L's little brother), she and my lil' boy went upstairs to play.
At some point, we wanted to try to take a couple photos of the two of them together. We made a plan and called her downstairs...
Mum, "L-! Come on downstairs!"
She asked why, we continued to call her, and she finally came out and sat at the top of the stairs, looking at us through the banister, "Okay, what is it?"
(We were obviously interrupting something very important. Blocks won't stack themselves, after all.)
Me, "We want to take some pictures of you and James. Want to come down?"
L, "NOOOOOOOOOOO!" and she runs back upstairs.
Oops... Sitting next to her little brother isn't her favourite thing, I guess.
bribery incentives, we were able to coerce her downstairs for some photos. However, cooperation didn't last very long. We all have those days, don't we? We'll have to attempt another day to get that photo of the two of them.
All in all, it was a lovely afternoon of
playing referee to toddlers tea, sneaky brownies for the adults, and fun photography. :)
Thank you, my friends, for inviting me to take photos of your beautiful children while mine ran around and stole L's toys. I look forward to next time!
So, if you would like to spend an afternoon with me and come out of it with beautiful keepsakes of you and your family (or just you!), just shoot me an email for more details. I look forward to hearing from you!
