Once upon a time I met the sweetest little newborn who slept during her entire session:
Six months later, we had another wonderful session together:
Then she came to my studio for her 1-year session and she said, “THAT IS IT! I AM TIRED OF MODELING FOR THIS LADY!” Well, okay, ONE smile and then I am DONE!
Portraits weren’t going well, so we moved on to the cake smash portion. And she was okay – as long as Daddy let her sit in his lap. Hahahahaha! These will make for some great stories and memories as she gets older. In the end, she decided it was her party, and she was going to cry if she wanted to.
Thank goodness for laid-back parents who were patient and loving – and who may or may not have joined me in a few laughs, because what else can you do? :)
