what its like to be a boy mom....
Okay, so many of you know that I've been blessed with one boy and one girl. So I can also say I know what its like to be a #boymom, and I also get to know the differences of little boys and little girls ( and yep, I clearly know each and every child is unique and thats awesome, but there certainly are many commonalities between most boys we come across). This age in particular they seem to have one thing in common, and thats.... ENERGY. LIKE. FOR. DAYS. They never get tired. Howwww?!?! My son hasn't napped in a decade it seems ( he's not even ten. so theres that lol). These energetic boys all love being silly and playful and I'm always up for shooting them while they're showing off their personalities! Give them a chance to run and they're happy as clams.
I love photographing boys together, hugging or whispering, but we all know that usually winds up with a bit of a too-tight-squeeze and one or both wanting to wrestle. Thats cool too as long as its all in fun. These guys here just melted me by how much they were both momma's boys. Especially the youngest. Its honestly the sweetest thing to see boys and their moms. Going from wrestling, and running and talking about boogers, to snuggling their mom in between.
Some kiddo's need quite a bit of warm up time to get to be comfortable in front of a camera, but these two breezed right into it. They followed along with all my requests and we were able to deliver mom a fun gallery with a perfect mixture of posed, sweet, and silly images of she and her boys.
So, if you have boys, and they're undoubtedly full of energy, bring them to us for a fun filled session and let us capture them being them. ( We highly suggest getting the boy sessions done outside, because these little humans don't thrive in a small studio space, they need wind in their sails lol)
