Well…it had to happen eventually…I got bested by a wee one. For the first time in nearly four years of business, I was outmatched. Beautiful, ALERT, Miss Kierstin would not sleep. In four hours, we got a handful of shots of her. She would doze off into a light slumber but would quickly wake back up the minute I laid her down or changed her position. At our wits end, I invited Not-So-Sleeping Beauty back for a second shoot. In all honesty, I didn’t figure she would sleep the second time any better than the first but…I was wrong. Day 2 was much better! The above money shot was my one “claim to fame” on the Day 1 shoot LOL but low and behold, she gave it to me again on Day 2.
I was excited to get the above grin out of her but THEN SHE GAVE ME THIS:
That has to go down as the biggest smile yet don’t you think? She was full on laughing in this shot. What on earth was the little pumpkin dreaming about? Her big brother Easton maybe? (I have done two shoots with brother and he is such a doll too and sweet as they come).
While I felt bad that Kierstin’s mama had to come back to me for a second round, I was also grateful that if it was going to happen, that it happened with this family. Not for their sake of course, but selfishly for mine. They are such gracious people and I feel fortunate to have them as clients. I just had to pull this off so they wouldn’t fire me (hee hee).
The lamb hat is pretty to-die-for isn’t it? (Thank you Oleysa – BeezyMama!)
And here is a good look at her baby blues…I saw quite a bit of them.
Thank you Miss Kierstin for restoring my faith in my Baby Whispering skills. You had me doubting it there for a minute. 😉 And thank you to P and K for your patience in seeing this through. Can’t wait to see who this little charmer will develop in to! See you again in six months or so?
