Sweet baby Laighton…what a nice girl she was for putting up with me and my photoshoot yesterday! The little pumpkin was working a fever and ear infection out of her system and wasn’t feeling 100%, but with busy work schedules and me due to have my second baby at any time now, our re-scheduling options were slim. So we forged ahead! With that in mind, our goal for the shoot was to get 1 really good smiley photo…and we got it! We also captured a range of other emotions, haha. Enjoy!
Babies are always wiggling their fingers around and doing cute things with them but I had to save and post this particular photo because it was the very first one I took and it’s like she was cluing us into how the rest of the shoot was gonna go. Check out the fingers on her right hand, lol.
1. “I’m in a pumpkin…I’m not so sure about this.
2. Oh wait, a tasty leaf. This isn’t so bad! I like to eat organic!
One more photo to share…
I’ve been lucky enough to know Erica for about 2 years now and I look up to her in many ways. She is my definition of a super mom… giving her 3 young kids unconditional love, patience, and attention. Whenever my Brayden is getting on my nerves and I’m about to yell at him, I try to stop and think how Erica would handle the situation. Surely, better than I would! So, it was no surprise that when Laighton got upset and needed a break during the session, Erica was ready with a bottle and sat right down on the grass, cradling her, soothing and rocking her. I stepped back and told Erica I was just taking a shot to test the light so that I could capture the “realness” of the moment. In terms of photography techniques, this photo is nothing special. But, it shows a real moment of true love and caring between Erica and Laighton and so, for that reason, I love it!
Thanks Macuga family!
