Just a few weeks ago, I did a downtown Sacramento family photo session day. Melanie and Tim (we photographed their wedding in 2008) and their newest addition Brandon, joined The Memory Journalists for their first formal family photo session.
I couldn't help but start with Brandon's shoes. :-)
Brandon wasn't having a fun time of it when we first started.
I told Melanie not to worry, we capture a moment in time regardless of if the little ones are having a good day or a bad day. It's still a wonderful memory.
Tim has this trick of blowing on Brandon's face to get him to stop crying. It made me totally crack up and it reminded me how Cory blows in our cat's face to get her to quit licking our faces when we sleep.
Once we started pulling Brandon around in the wagon, he completely quieted down and had a much better time. Mel brought the sock monkey (hello my fave!!) to use a prop.
We were able to get several family photos taken...huge success!
And some individual moments too.
What do you think - Is Brandon sticking his tongue out at me specifically? :-)
Naw...he was just tired. I love the stretch while in daddy's arms.
And my favorite photo of the day. What a perfect ending!
