There are just some sessions that stand out for one reason or another. This one was one of those times. But of course, for a great reason. I am still chuckling about it today.
Getting an Inquiry
I love it when clients write me a note inquiring about a session. Gives me a good reason to meet some new people and I love doing that. It is truly one of the best parts of my job. When this mama reached out to me and booked her session I was excited. Her baby boy was already born so we scheduled the session for within the next week or so.
As part of my process in preparing for a session, I send my clients a questionnaire. This really helps me get to know who is coming and some of the things they may like or even not like and get prepared to really create something they are going to love. As I was reading through her answers I looked at the names of her older children. One name really stuck out to me. I looked at my son and asked him what his friend I’s last name was. He told me and lo and behold it was the same family. I had no idea that one of my son’s closest friends mom had just had a baby and apparently she was coming in for a session. LOL Oh and this kid was just at my house two nights before for Halloween and his mom had dropped him here.
So as I was getting ready for my clients to arrive, I could not help but have the giggles. I was wondering how long it would take her to realize that we had met before and that our sons were friends. Needless to say she must have figured it out as she was driving up. We both got a good laugh about it when her and her family arrived.
Sweet Mr Z arrived at my house at 8 days fresh and was just as adorable as could be. He had such a sweet and mellow little personality and not to mention two amazing and loving older siblings. I really love seeing the interaction between them. It is always super nice when the siblings are older too and just seeing them hold him and just love on him. (Toddlers are awesome but they don’t always want to love the baby, especially in front of my camera. LOL)
Check out some of my favorite pictures from our session. What a fun and special day we had.
