Surprise! Portrait session of Emmett for mom
Friday, April 9, 2010 - Babies & KidsEmmett's grandma Nancy decided to give a surprise portrait session of Emmett to his mom for her birthday. Betsy, Emmett's mommy had seen our work and been into our studio and was dying to have a session. What a nice birthday surprise! We photographed the session at Emmett's house (Betsy is a textile designer and her house is beautiful!) Emmett was a little hesitant at first, especially around big gorilla Joel :) - but we are totally used to that, so I worked with him for the first part of the session. The great thing about being a husband and wife team, and going to every session together, is that the kids usually like at least one of us. If they like both of us, even better! It's such a great bonus though to have both a man and woman around. The babies usually like me more, and the older boys tend to warm up to Joel in no time at all. (Sometimes the girls too!) So with Emmett, we had a little bit of coaxing to do, but held in there and were able to get some fun stuff out of him. All you need is a little bit of patience, and you can make it happen. :)
Even though Nancy really loved this hat, Emmett didn't want to have anything to do with it!
