Fennell Family

Since having Wyatt I have done plenty of client work, photographing families, seniors, and everything in between. What I underestimated was the challenge in figuring out the mom/work balance…more specifically, blogging. I am glad to be back at the computer, sharing with y’all the most recent work I’ve done for friends we’ve known since we moved to Texas. The Fennells just became a family of four with the addition of their son Bronson – who is an absolute clone of Liam. I know this because I also photographed Liam as a newborn. I actually took a shot of Bronson similar to one that I took of Liam during his newborn shoot. I find it fascinating to see genetics and how that plays among siblings…the similarities they share, but also the details that make them unique. This session was done in the comfort of their home (my typical location when photographing newborns). For these images, Natalie wanted to focus more on the four of them with a few photos of Bronson sprinkled in. Liam was a gem with his baby brother, and it’s so easy to get sibling shots when older siblings are fascinated with the new baby. Encouraging Liam to take photos with Bronson was smooth and simple. I shifted my focus on encouraging him to interact with his brother, instead of limiting him to cheesin’ at the camera. Children tend to respond well to getting their picture taken when you give them a task to do – something they can claim ownership of.No mom wants to have to fight her child to take a photograph – but some of us will (guilty! haha). Moms: What are your tips to prepare your children/toddlers for family photos?
