I want you to know...
Prior to becoming a mom, I was a special ed pre-k teacher! Actually, I still maintain my certification, but I taught special ed for 9 years in variety of settings with lots of different kiddos. When you combine my years of experience as a nanny and teacher, we're talking like, 20 years. Translation: I love kids! I get kids. If yours show up a little wild or shy, it's all good. Just be ready to love on them the best you know how. I'll handle the rest.
Hot tip: If your husband isn't super thrilled about the idea of a family portrait session he's not the first and I'm not offended. Give him a beer before hand (no, really), and then reassure him, he really doesn't even need to look at me if he doesn't want to!
I don't mind getting silly for the benefit and comfort of your babies. I'll apologize in advance for the bad dancing and worse singing.
In all honesty, I'm really not about the whole "everyone look at me and smile!" vibe. Sure, we'll get a few with you looking at the camera because I know grandma eats it up, but... I'm way more interested in you connecting with your family! I want to see you guys laughing and snuggling up and enjoying each other's company.
