sweet. sweet. & lots of sweet talkin’ | San Antonio Maternity Photographer

Soft. Sweet. Joyful. That is what these images are all about. Buuuuuut…

…what you didn’t see…ohhhhmygoodness…was that for a second there, I though this shoot was a total bust. Uh huh. Let me explain. Nic & I had this genius idea that we were going to mini session swap. Let’s bring both the girls. I’ll shoot some of her, she’ll shoot some of us. Yeah. Well. I thought giving caroline the iPhone to keep her busy while I shot Nicole & Makenna was a great idea–until Makenna caught a glimpse of it. Then they fought over who was going to hold it. Then they wouldn’t put it down. Then Makenna wouldn’t take two steps from caroline. & obviously caroline is not the ideal accessory for a maternity mommy & me shoot…when her mother is not the preggers in front of the lens. Oh. Dis-as-ter. Please learn a lesson from me: do not think about mini session swapping with two toddlers in tow. Even if they are your dear friends. Especially if you like that perfect evening glow…which happens after bedtime. Ooof.

But…I [we] did it. Pretty sure we both went home & slept very well that night. Worth every second. If I may say so myself. :) Oh, & here’s a little tip: if the kiddo is upset…well…shoot her cute shoes. ;)
