Let me be clear. As a Bronxville Family Photographer, I would never wish pain on a sweet little baby. I have to say, though, that when this soft little sister was feeling out of sorts at the beginning of our session one recent Saturday morning and mom and I determined she was working on a tooth, I did see the silver lining. That little face she made — thrusting out that lower lip and scrunching up her face in a little frown — is captured forever. I knew that with a little Children’s Tylenol and some extra cuddles from Mommy and a few minutes to rest, she’d be on her game giving happy smiles and cuddles in no time. And I was right. And now we’ve got both in their storybook album. Along, of course, with big brother’s silly antics and lots of memories of a typical Saturday morning. Yay!
I always tell my families ahead of time that they should do their best not to stress when something appears to be going less-than-smoothly during their LYYP session. Whether it’s a fussy newborn or a teething baby or a stubborn toddler or a super shy preschooler …. I’m never in a rush to get through my lifestyle sessions and I have yet to meet a subject that I can’t distract/cheer up/wait out. And I love capturing the story all through the process. Trust me — it’s all worth remembering!
Thanks for looking!
