So I finally broke down and got real professional pictures of the kids for Easter. In the past we've used Portrait Innovations, and while they were good, it just didn't work well for us. I debated on a real photographer because well, I didn't really want to spend a fortune. Then I came across Lauren Atkins Photography from a good friend. She was doing Easter Mini Sessions for $50.00, which included a 30 minute session and 10 edited pictures on a CD. So I caved, and signed the kids up.
Of course, it was a rainy weekend, so we had to move our outdoor session inside. (She had offered to reschedule, but I knew we couldn't do any other time, and quite frankly, I just needed pictures).
I warned Lauren that Owen, my 5 year old was HORRIBLE with pictures and we would just take what we could get.
A few days before I talked to Owen about taking good pictures and how he could take pictures with a bunny and ducks if he would like, but didn't have to if he didn't want to.
Well, from now on, we will be having Bunny's and ducks in all our pictures, Owen was a HAM, I'm pretty sure she got 100 pictures of just O.
Brynnleigh on the other hand, was HORRIBLE. She screamed and cried and wouldn't let me sit her down. She didn't even want the sucker that Lauren had. We tried with and without the animals in case they scared her, she wanted nothing to do with it.
Luckily Lauren was kinda go with the flow, so we kept trying, and eventually I gave in and let Brynnleigh play with her favorite toy of all time....and we got at least 1 good picture of the kids together...
So, here's our Easter picture....Owen, Brynnleigh, and the I-phone!
I haven't gotten the other pics yet, but I'll be sure to share once I do!
