This past Saturday (… i really need to stop starting all my blog posts the same way – it has to be boring!)
So let’s try something new!¬†
The day before this past Sunday (… nope, that’s kinda lame and dorkish – fits me well!)
On the 20th of February twenty-10 (… ugh… not working for me either)
A little over 48 hours ago I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Leah & Simon!¬† I did some commercial work for their Dad late last year and his wife inquired about a family portrait session.¬† After several reschedules due to Simon not feeling well, me not feeling well, Leah not feeling well, etc we finally managed to connect this past Saturday (dang I was so trying to avoid that!)
Simon was totally decked out in an awesome little outfit and had the coolest kiddo hat I think I have ever seen!¬† Leah was absolutely adorable as well, but she was a little angry that I had to move her toys to set things up – officially she asked “why are you making such a mess?”¬† I couldn’t help but chuckle!¬†
Leah¬†took a bit of warming up.. She WOULD NOT sit on the setup unless I first photographed Cinderella, and naturally I obliged, after she looked on the LCD screen (this was to verify I actually took the picture) and Cinderalla was still okay and nothing bad happened, Leah was ready to go!
I had a fantastic time working with Leah & Simon.. If there is one thing that can get me everytime, its when a young child shows me affection and feels safe!¬† Leah came over to me after I broke down my setup and gave me a hug and whispered (thank you for cleaning up your mess) – It was moving to say the least!
Enough babbling, here are some of my favorites, starting with a little sibling action!
A little grin from Simon here in this next shot!
And a huge smile¬†here!
Simon was totally rockin this hat – reminds me of a little boy from the 40′s!
Leah was resistant to sit alone at first even after Cinderella turned out to be ok, so Mom popped in for a bit!
Mom wanted to get up and out of the way and you can definitely see how Leah felt about that!
¬†I absolutely love this next shot!
See how happy Leah was after I “cleaned up my mess!”
After I was done, had put everything away but my camera, I saw Leah lost in the moment and had to grab one more!
It really was great meeting the two of you and thanks for the laughs!
