Sleeves are for Wimps – Stuttgart, Germany Family Photographer
Jennifer contacted me in late April regarding a shoot for her girls since they celebrated a big milestone of their twins turning 1. Their oldest daughter is 7 so I knew it would be a fun mix between 2 girls who want to do their own thing and one who is old hat at this photo taking thing.
As was typical for our spring in Newport, the weather played mind games with us and we postponed and rescheduled and FINALLY there was a day of no rain. Of course it was cool, oh who am I kidding, it was downright cold for May in Rhode Island! It was your standard Newport 50 degree day with 30 mph winds, so we all felt like it was around 35-40 degrees. Beautiful!
I will admit I was very nervous when I saw all the girls in sleeveless dresses and rompers. I was afraid they would be so cold and it would be challenging to get great photos. Obviously I’ve never been around these tough and beautiful girls before! They were such troopers and hardly fussed about the cold and wind and I could definitely have taken some cues from them!
These babies maybe fussed once about being cold during all these photos and their awesome big sister never made a peep about the wind the chill. Big sister was quite the model too, trying all kinds of things while the littles were being taken care of behind us.
These photos are EXACTLY why I ask parents to bring books, toys and kids’ favorite items with them to photo shoots. This is what you want to remember from these time periods in kids’ lives. Most of my favorite photos of my girls include a “lovey” or something that they were attached to at that time. Now we look back on those photos and I can answer all those questions of what they were into at that time and why the heck did they carry it everywhere?!!
Aside from the colder than usual May day, you would also never guess that about 20-25 feet away from our cozy little photo shoot there was a big rugby match happening as well. I don’t think these girls are rugby fans because they didn’t even bat an eye at all the mayhem happening. They were too busy being way too adorable.
Thank you so much again Jennifer for trusting me to take these photos! And thank you to your 3 beautiful and amazing rock stars!
