At the end or March we took the kids to get their pictures taken; for Connor's 3 year and Addison's 1 year milestone. We've always taken them to a studio but I had found this great deal on LivingSocial for an on location shoot. I thought it would be a great way to try something new. If they didn't turn out great, I wouldn't be out too much money. Long story short, the deal was too good to be true. The photographer took their pictures but we never heard from him again :( It took a couple of months before I accepted the fact that I wasn't ever going to see those pictures and started looking for another photographer. I shared my story with a photographer friend of ours and he couldn't believe it. Then he offered to take pictures of the kiddos. He normally takes architectural pictures but is trying to get into portraits so it was a win win situation. I would get my shots and he would get his practice :) We opted to take them indoors this time. The kids had fun with it. I think it helped that they knew the guy. Raif, our photographer, is Finn's dad (one of Connor's best buddies from school). Afterwards he invited us back to their house for a little BBQ and swim. Though the pictures were taken a couple of months after their actual 'milestones' I'm just glad I finally got them.
Let me know if you want a particular picture and what size. I haven't printed any yet so I'm taking orders :)
