Well, a little over 6 months actually but whose counting? Preston has grown into a rolly-polly cherub with beautiful grey eyes and super model charm, he was pulling out all the stops towards the end of the session:
Craig’s family isn’t all in one place very often so it was a photo op with Craig’s sister Bethany home from sunny CA for the holidays. I’m not big on studio lights but decided they might come in handy indoors, it was too chilly to go out and play. While I doubt this was the shot they had in mind, I loved it:
Minutes after the teary family portrait, a tired Preston fell asleep in his mother’s arms. Not that it kept me from taking photos, through rain or sleet or snore, I’m on it. Passed out and like a hot potato, he made the rounds.
Despite hating having his picture taken, Mike is clearly photogenic:
Natalie’s mom Cindy arrived in time to get a few sweet and sleepy photos with her grandson too. There’s just something about a grandmother’s touch, don’t you think?
And once little man was ready, we tried that family portrait again. Even Hilton the dog was ready for her close up this time…
We got some cute stuff just playing on that couch, this b/w might be my favorite in a long time…
Baby Preston has a new and bigger room with more play space, a giant map, a cool elephant sculpture and (quick intake of breathe w/ widened eyes) chalkboard paint! Man, I totally want that in my bedroom but then I would just doodle all day. I can’t wait until Preston is just a little older so we can have some fun with that! One session at a time, Mel.
I’m glad to get two more sessions with this handsome fella! Here’s a slideshow of the session and click here to access the online gallery and I’m looking forward to doing it again soon with more more family fun!
