Baby's first photo shoot
Kids invited me along for GS's first portrait sitting this morning. His mom met us there, so with the four of us and the studio staff, there were six of us cooing and whistling at the poor little guy. All he wanted to do was sleep...
The photographer had only him today, so no concerns over cold season and his tiny immune system. They had cranked up the heat in the studio before we arrived, so he would be comfortable, even in his "birthday suit."
I was so glad they decided to go the professional photographer route. They took all the time they needed, and didn't rush when the baby wanted a little nursing break. He settled right back down, and they got even better shots the second session.
What really tickled me was that they are sending my daughter a link, probably this afternoon, with all the proofs online, so she can pick what she wants. She can share the link, so we can order, too. They will even do their Christmas cards in-house for her. Can't wait to see them.
I was terrible at not being able to get portraits made often enough...did okay with first child, but it got harder and harder as I had more. Have a few really good ones, but sure do wish i had more. Am hoping to keep a good habit of studio shots as he grows up.
Do you have really good pictures of your kids, or do you kick yourself for missing out,too?

I have seen some unbelievably beautiful baby pictures in studio windows...I can't wait to see what my grandsons will turn out to be like. Right now all he does is sleep...I haven't even seen his eyes. So differant than the Penneys ones I had taken of my kids.
