Garden World in Abilene, TX
It is getting hot in Abilene! Having two active little children, I have to come up with ways to keep them busy. Today we decided to check out a local greenhouse called Garden World. The kids had a lot of fun walking through and looking at everything. While the location did provide a great backdrop for a mini sibling session, it provided many learning opportunities for my curious 3-year-old son. I would tell him what a plant was and he would relay that information to his 1.5-year-old sister! It was too cute. He is the best big brother!
Sweet Sibling Moments
Posing little kids for pictures is not always an easy task. I guide them with fun activities or actions I know they are capable of understanding. My son blew me away today. I had asked him to stand next to his sister and instead he grabbed his sister’s hand and said ” Emma, I want to dance”. (insert crying mom face). That is the sweetest thing I had ever seen. They have recently started to get a long a little better. Thank goodness because I have had to be a single parent for the last four and half months while my husband is deployed. This whole trip lasted maybe 30 minutes but it was a fun half an hour. There were no tantrums or fussing but there were a lot of smiles! The kids loved their new fedora hats too and I think they added the perfect touch to this session.
“The Money Shot”
I take many pictures of my kiddos, I will not deny it. Sometimes I think I have a problem but they are the reason I started doing photography. I don’t consider myself a lifestyle photographer either but it’s so easy with these two! They don’t listen much to me anyways, so there’s that. My goal each time I photograph my kids is to get ONE great image. Well guys, today I got a fantastic shot. In my eyes its so perfect, I teared up! I hope this is the kind of emotion and joy I can give my clients when they have a session with me. I am still deciding how to display it in my home but there is no doubt it’s being displayed.
