When I arrived at Cole and Reed’s house for their session, I opened the back of the van and realized my husband forgot something when he loaded the car with my equipment. He forgot my seamless paper backdrops that I typically use when doing an indoor session with littles who are not newborns. We just moved to the middle of nowhere, so my drive was far too long to run back and grab them. So after the call to my hubs – you know, the one where you make them feel guilty for messing up – I decided to ditch my studio lighting as well so that I could move around the house. Luckily, it was an unusually sunny day in Upstate NY during the world’s longest, coldest winter, and Cole and Reed’s mommy is an interior designer! So out of my comfort zone I went, and I am SO glad I did because I LOVE the results. Let’s start with my buddy Reed. I could have photographed him all day. This was a session to capture him at 4 months – the start of my favorite 4-8 month age! Smiles? Check. Inability to move too much? Check. Most awesome hair ever? Check. Reed was ready for me!! We started in his brother’s room which had an awesome carpet!
Add a flat cap, and I melt! I love me some flat caps!
Then we moved to the master bed where we were able to pull of some gorgeous sibling shots! Cole was not particularly interested in sitting still but most almost 3 year olds aren’t! But seriously, he did such a great job holding his baby brother!
We moved around to keep things interesting for Cole, and he and I played in his room for a bit!
Last stop was Reed’s room. Reed loves the camera, and the camera loves him!
Finally, with Cole, we resorted to pure bribery. A promise of a popsicle was what he needed to sit still!! Isn’t he handsome?!
I love these guys and can’t wait for our family shoot coming up!!
