Look at that face! This sweet face was also my first baby/child model back in 2009 when he was about 8 months. I can’t believe how much he’s grown! Caleb was such a blast to work with yesterday morning at JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh and the weather was absolutely gorgeous!! (and good thing because my “rain date” for Spring Minis, which was today, was a complete BUST!). Caleb was such a great subject and was absolutely ready for his picture to be taken the moment he arrived. He was eager to show me ALL of his faces, including his best KISS tongue impression (lol), dragon claws and various other adorable “poses” he could come up with. There was never a dull moment and it is going to make for quite a stellar gallery for his parents. hehe. All kidding aside, in between the many hysterical faces of Caleb, there were a bunch of sweet moments, bright eyes and coy smiles to be captured…including the photograph above. He was full of so much energy and at the very end said a very soft and sweet “are we done now?” after only 25 minutes, haha, which makes Caleb a perfect candidate for a mini session. ;) Many children don’t have the patience to withstand the full 90 minute session which is why I offer a range of 60-90 minutes. Even if we ended a full session before the 60 minutes were up, there would most likely be plenty of images captured to fill up a gallery. Especially with children, there are always a lot of “good” images captured but some images are very similar to each other or may have been caught mid-blink, etc. I always select the best of the best images which can sometimes be difficult to do. Many galleries end up with more than the minimum number of promised images…sometimes even mini sessions..shhhh! ;) I can’t wait to finish editing Caleb’s mini session and uploading his gallery for his parents. Once they choose their 10 images, I will be sure to blog the full blog post with their chosen images!!
