I used to hand out my business card and declare that it was a smile guarantee if they chose to book a photo session with me.
It has been a while since I’ve said that, but I’m really struggling to remember a session
where I did not successfully get at least one or two great smile pictures of everyone.
If I have ever failed, I’m almost certain that the smileless subject was an adult.
Okay, okay, not EVERY newborn has made with the sleepy smiles. 😉
There have certainly been some sessions where I started getting nervous toward the end.
I’ve got loads of tricks up my sleeve, enough energy to outlast the most rambunctious 2 year old,
and patience that probably makes you think I’m the best mom in the world
(I’m not. My kids would get jealous if they saw how patient I am with your kids!)
But, when extreme temperatures, hunger, and teething all line up,
it’s a challenge to catch Mama Bear with a true smile let alone her bribed brood.
All of that said, this session was NOT one of those challenges.
We did what we could in terms of planning to maximize our chances at a happy baby,
and there was no shortage of toothy grins!
Heck, this little doll even let us get away with an outfit change!
Clap, clap, clap! That’s a wrap!
Great job to this beautiful family and please
bring Miss Adelaide back for more pictures soon!
