Oh baby it is so nice outside, warm weather is finally here to stay! I love it, my kids love it, and this little man loves it.
This young guy needed to spend so much time with me, we did two sessions for his little self. He was just not in the mood for his first session. Sometimes baby just isn't in the mood, maybe the car ride wasn't to his liking, or maybe he just needed to know me better! Either way, we had a much better session for our second meeting. He stayed sleepy, and allowed me to pose him just right.
One of the key factors in my job is knowing when the tiny little subject is done. Recognizing when a baby, or child is just at the point of no return, and just not having it anymore is important. For a couple of reasons, first off, baby screaming pictures aren't really that fun, and second, as a photographer I want to create a positive environment for my little ones. I want them to want to come back and be happy! A kiddo who hates having pictures made is no fun for mom and dad who so want those pictures.
Mr. Wyatt just wasn't feeling his first session, he was not sleepy, and not hungry, and not wanting to pose for me. So we just called it, and after I reviewed his images and contacted mom letting her know I really felt like we should give it another try. Change of scenery, change in plan and viola' baby magic.
Here are a few of my favorite images from his sessions, a little from both. Enjoy!
