I recently had the opportunity to photograph the adorable Miss Emma. Some of you might remember that I also had the pleasure of taking maternity and newborn pictures of Momma and little Emma. Mom (Jen) was set with outfits and accessories galore...not to mention she had even wrangled Dad into joining the shoot!
We scheduled the shoot around the schedules of Emma's brothers, during a time that is typically a "happy...awake time” for the budding princess. But like most 4 month olds Emma had something different planned than what Mom was hoping for.
Miss Emma was great for the first couple shots with Mom and Dad.
Then…it was down hill from there. Jen desperately wanted a shot similar to one she had taken of her two sons...now as you can guess Emma was having none of that.
I think our children are a humbling reminder of how little in life we actually have control over. Sorry Jen that the image you so wanted didn't work, but I hope there’s another one from that day that might capture your heart in a completely different and unique way. Welcome to the world of girls!!
The happy images we were able to capture were really quite funny! As long as Mom was blowing and tickling Emma's feet she was content. So away we went trying to capture as many shots of the adorable little bug as we could.
The shots might not be the exact ones Mom had envisioned...but just like the pajamas stuffed in the shoes is not the look I would like for my daughter...I have learned to accept that sometimes you just have to smile and accept the moment for what it is. I hope Jen will be able to embrace the same mindset and love the images as I do! To see all of the images we got that day simply click on Emma's name.
