Family Portrait: Rustic Mommy and Me

From Leah Dorr Photography,  “We all do it; at least most of us do! We bribe our kids with something before and during a photo session because let’s be honest; if left to their own devices, those jokers could sabotage the entire session! What we’re asking kids to do for 20-40 minutes is so unnatural. Sit here, don’t move, keep your body still, make a ‘pretty’ smile, hold hands (but do it gently) and yada yada…Although I do my very best to capture kids as their natural selves, sometimes their natural self doesn’t stop moving for a minute, let alone for a picture! So when in doubt…bring some kind of treat or bribe for good behavior!Marshmallows. They are one of the best bribes ever for kids during a session because even if they’re still enjoying that (incredibly) sweet treat, they mostly blend in their mouth because they look like TEETH! Genius, right?? One of my friends in Virginia brought them to a session for her kids and told me the idea behind it…and I’ve been suggesting it ever since! Amanda brought marshmallows for her kids, and although their behavior was aammaazziinngg, we still broke them out here and there to reward them. Ava and Ethan are made of good manners, smiles and soft little voices. They definitely made it in the top 5 list of easiest kids to photograph! And let’s talk about Amanda for a minute (or two…). Everyone who knows Amanda thinks she is incredible. She is! She possesses so many qualities that I strive for. She is gentle, tender-hearted, funny, and thoughtful. The main adjective I would use the describe her is attentive. She pays attention to her kids. She nurtures her kids, and they know she is paying attention. Amanda’s mommy & me mini session was done in DeBary at Gemini Springs.”
