When Cristy and I first talked about a photo shoot, I was excited. Her kids are full of energy and absolutely adorable. But then we started talking a little more. Apparently, hey haven’t taken portraits in several years, mostly because the kids won’t sit still, look at the camera, or even try to cooperate. (Does this sound familiar? If you have kids, it probably will.) The excitement turned to just a little nervousness. So it was a pleasant surprise when they were the model family. Such a fun group to work with, and so willing to do whatever was asked of them. Thanks to the Witney family. Let’s do this again some time.
And I had to post this one for the boys:

I love to photograph children. Especially my children. Unfortunately, they don’t love having their pictures taken. They’re okay for a shot or two, but the idea of moving to a new spot to try out better lighting is not something that excites them. (How could that not be exciting? I get excited just thinking about it!) So sometimes they won’t look at me. But I’m okay with that because I happen to think they’re pretty darn cute even when they don’t look at the camera. Guess they’re going to have to come up with some other way to get out of it.

So sad to see my little boy going back to school. I’ll miss our fun-filled summer days. He’s excited to head to the second grade this year but not so excited that I’m making him cut his hair first. Here’s his back to school shot before I break out the clippers. He’ll like this one much more than his freshly trimmed first day of school shot.
