I am so excited to share with you this session. So truth be told, I have not photographed a two year old I have not met before. I was a little nervous going into it. I had to pull out my training from my daycare teacher days when I used to care for up to ten 2 year olds at a time. Talk about learning to think on your feet. I had to come up with a way I knew would entertain a two year old while also getting photos and hoping that I could easily keep him happy.
I work with Abbey at a medical office full time and so I knew I would be super comfortable photographing her. The stories she would tell about her son (and her perfect impersonations) pumped me up so much to do this session with Max.
We went to the amphitheater right outside the Bryan House on Indiana University’s campus. I figured it would be a perfect backdrop as well as playground for Max. It was a win-win.
He instantly melted my heart. He was very interested in all of the surroundings, which made it very easy to get photographs. Abbey did mention they take a lot of photos of him, so he was not phased by me following him around with my big camera.
Max loved to climb around and was very interested in the non-existent fishes that were in the creek. He was very satisfied with the bubbles I brought for him to play with as well.
Abbey was a total natural as she knew how to interact with him and make amazing photo opportunities. I felt like I never needed to cue her to do anything. It made it so easy to put more focus on following the never stopping Max around.
I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful Mommy & Me session. Thank you both so much for your time and trusting me with this special moment.
Without further ado, here are some sneak peeks of their session.
