I get the opportunity to shoot lots of kiddos being a photographer, and while my own children get pictures snapped of them all the time, it is usually in candid moments. It is/was rare that I took them out for their own photo shoots together (Lola loves her picture taken, so she goes by herself a lot!!!!) so when they were game for their second one of the year I grabbed the camera and we headed out. Of course I bribed them with cinnamon rolls from What-A-Burger on our way home if they behaved and it worked! I NEEDED (ok, just really wanted) a picture of the two of them together, both looking at me, smiling. Nothing goofy, just nice pictures of my babies. In this ten minute shoot, I got several that I fell in love with, but one that stood out more than the others, when I saw it on my screen, it was the one that gave me goosebumps, making it my favorite picture of all of 2010:
PS - From approximately the first weekend in November to the middle of January (booked up until next weekend), I have had shoots (even sometimes 3-5) every weekend, with the exception of Christmas weekend off . I shoot on the weekends because I am a teacher. Last year, I was not this busy. Business is picking up! I am very excited and with both school and pictures, I am so busy, but loving it! I am even going to take a little leap and run an add in one of the west valley high school newspapers! I look very forward to what 2011 brings!
