These two! <3 Peas in a pod! Had me dreaming I was having fraternal twins the night following our session! Meet Owen & Olivia!
This spunky duo kept me laughing and running (which is quite the sight to see at this late stage of my pregnancy!) around Longwood Gardens last week.
I love when I’m faced with new challenges during a session & figuring out how to work with it or around it and still have a successful session! This – my last portrait session both of 2014 and pre-baby – was, perhaps, one of the more challenging sessions I’ve had because:
1) Longwood was packed with guests to see their Christmas displays & trying to not get a million people in the background was interesting!
2) It seemed like everyone that walked past us ooh’ed-and-ahh’ed over how CUTE the kiddos were, thinking they were mine & were either saying “Aww, smile at mommy!” or “Stand here for mommy!” or “OH! There’s a really good shot over here if you have them stand here like this.”
3) Additionally, almost everyone who walked past us that was trying to “help” would make bunny or moose ears on me.
Our time together was distractions galore and without a dull moment!This 37-week pregnant mama worked hard and we all managed to still have a ton of fun together, exploring all the Christmasy nooks of Longwood together! I’m proud of these shots & think these images really captured well O & O’s personalities, joy & laughter!
