And Then There Were Bubbles – Newport, Rhode Island Family Photographer
I was very excited when Brittany contacted me for family photos a few months ago. She knew from the start where she wanted to go for her photos and when I found out she had 2 young girls then I knew we would have a great time! Lucky for us the weather was cooperating that day so we set out for the infamous Gala red building in Yomitan for some beautiful family photos.
Brittany is a busy mama of these 2 beauties, going to school and working from home as well. I admire moms who get their schooling done after the kids are born because I’m not sure I would have had the stamina! I had enough issues when I was single and purely focused on post high school studies. But she’s doing it well and raising 2 awesome girls with her husband at the same time. On top of all of this they also moved the week of our photos as well and had she not told me I never would have realized it – they were all calm, cool and collected!
I always try to get individual shots of the kiddos for mom, dad, aunts, uncles and grandparents and that’s exactly what we used to bribe these two. The left photo was after telling her that we were going to send it to grandma – love that big gorgeous grin! And don’t even get me started on those eyes. Her sister took a little more persuading, but gave in and flashed us her beautiful smile in the end.
I always keep snacks and bubbles in my arsenal (big blue box of goodies) of stuff I bring to sessions. There’s a trick to this though – get them out too early and there are more crying photos than smiley ones. Let them know you have them and all concentration is lost from the kids AND the adults. We were nearly done and mom and dad gave the ok to get the bubble bribe out and boy oh boy am I so glad that I still had the camera at the ready when we did. I was able to catch this priceless photo of Brittany’s oldest daughter waiting for bubbles from her daddy. I just love her excited look!
Thank you again Brittany and Kevin! You have an absolutely gorgeous family!
