This little boy has been coming to see me since he was in his mommy’s tummy. They are one of my very first clients and I am so thankful to be able to watch their little boy grow up. While his session didn’t go quite as planned, it did go like a typical 18 month old boy session would go. Mom was out of town for the first time so dad and “J” came to see me yesterday. At first I thought the session might be a complete disaster. “J” was not exactly thrilled to see me (thank you 18 month separation anxiety). So I decided to pull out the bunny to get him to come over to me. I was hoping to save the bunny for later so I could get a few regular shots first, but so much for my plan. While he was interested enough to come see the bunny, as soon as we put it down he lost it. Poor little guy, he looked traumatized. So we put bunny back in his cage. That’s when he got REALLY interested. Cages have doors – that open and close and well, 18 month old boys are fascinated by these things. So open and close we did. Again. and Again. and Again. Finally towards the end of the session I thought I’d give it one last shot to see if he wanted to see the bunny – and he did! He even gave the bunny hugs and held him. Success, mostly =) I know it didn’t go how we envisioned, but I still think we did great. It was at least great to get to see you guys again! Happy Easter!
