When it comes to photographing my family (more specifically, my sister), shoots are a little different than with most clients.
Last time I took pictures for Hannah, I had to bring my kids. Towards the end, Ross started bossing us all around and Rayna came pretty close to a pretty intense melt-down. This time, we brought along a different assistant- my dad! Although Parker was already in a good mood, having his PaPa there to make funny noises and carry his toys was a huge help.
Another big difference is the communication-difference I experience after taking pictures for Hannah. Even though I know most clients are eager to see a few Sneak Peeks (…like… minutes after their session), they patiently wait until I let them know their images have been posted. With Hannah… not so much. I had barely gotten home and gotten my kids in bed when I started getting text messages and emails about when I could post some pictures.
Well, it worked! Here are a few our session last night…
I am SO glad we finally updated their family pictures! It was so much fun, I could sent Parker and my dad to the car, had Hannah and Jason change in the middle of a field and just photographed them alone for another 30 minutes. Oh wait… that actually happened (More pictures to come later…)
