One and Five

I got a call from Trey and Lauren's mom a few weeks ago telling me that she'd like to have portraits made soon, since Lauren was turning one and Trey was turning five. I was so excited for this session, because I had a dream of a time with them back in March when I shot their family session.

I didn't realize how much had changed since then... but when you have TWO moving children instead of just ONE, things get a little tricky. :) As you'll see in the collage image below, sometimes I had to work my creative magic to keep the interest going.

In his usual form, Trey was such a poser for me. He did almost anything I asked of him... well, motified to his liking. For example, this image below is ta
ken while sitting on top of a sewer grate.

Lauren was too cute in her little dress and walking around like she owned the place.

How to keep a 5 year-old entertained... offer him an acorn and tell him to pose it.

I just love this image of Lauren exploring her surroundings.

More of Lauren on the move.

Sure, in the other image he looked sweet and innocent. Something in this one might prove otherwise...

Finally, Melissa (mom) and I were talking about my new holiday card offerings and she mentioned that she wasn't a fan of the traditional red and green cards. Maybe something fun and whimsy is more your style?
