I had so much fun as Anderson’s milestone photographer today. Like, we giggled non stop. He was not your average 3 year old. There is a full grown personality packed into this tiny little boy.
These milestone sessions are so fun to do year to year as your kids grow up. Of course, I keep the session as a quick one, so your littles don’t get bored of me. I love doing half of it in my lifestyle space, and half in the studio.
Today we started Anderson’s session just like that. We did a few variations in the lifestyle room. It’s such a simple classic look. White bedding, beautiful tones of browns and earthy colors. I tied those browns into his studio set with a brown seamless paper.
How I like to get smiles
I love to tease the kids about their stinky feet to get genuine laughs. As always, Anderson needed nearly no bait to get smiles. He cheesed his way through the whole session. As a result, he was all sorts of goofy, making up his own posing, and changing the position I put him in before I could get back to my camera. Of course, all of that is ok, I snapped away, all while teasing him about what he changed. It makes him giggle and wiggle. He kept looking away and back at me as fast as he could. In fact, it made him laugh so hard to think he was getting away with something silly.
Being his milestone photographer first thing this morning made my whole day brighter. As I uploaded his images it just made me smile and I could hear his giggle in my mind. He just made me smile all day. I can’t wait to show his parents this gallery. They are going to love them!
Enjoy Anderson’s gallery from today, I bet you can’t look through them without smiling too!
