Family PhotoShoot: Spring 2013

You might remember this post from my Instagram feed a few weeks back.  I featured the outfits we would be wearing for our family photo shoot.

I wanted to share a few of my favorite pictures from the day days.  I must say….this photo shoot was like having a third c-section.  I had NO idea the coordination and patience a multiple child photo shoot would require.  My photographer, Nicole (who is nothing short of a genius) captured the most beautiful images and to most the afternoon probably appears calm and chaos free….nothing could be further from the truth.  The first set of shots were taken a weeknight down by the water.  The shoot lasted about 12 minutes…in our defense…it was 48 degrees.  Connor ran away to play on the playground and then had to pee in the bushes.  Preston cried from the moment we laid down the quilted blanket and had snot running down his face for most of those shots.  We chalked it up to being “too cold” and decided to reschedule for the weekend.  Yet again, my normally cheerful, never stops smiling baby was pissed.  Not as pissed as the other day, but certainly not his giggly self. Connor had already “done this” and had received his milkshake for being good behind the camera.  Knowing there wasn’t anything more in it for him, he decided not to cooperate and actually had a tantrum (which is very unlike him). Ah!!!!!  Somehow we managed to capture these beautiful moments in time but I am pretty sure I aged a few years.

and finally ….one of the ONLY smiles of the entire shoot…..

  1. OH, my GOODNESS! Your boys are just gorgeous, Carly! And well done on the styling. I’m cracking up because I know all too well what you mean. I tried to get a couple simple pictures for Easter and that was a joke! haha… but you certainly can’t tell from this photo shoot. They turned out gorgeous.

    Awww..your boys are adorable and I love the little bow tie…they are precious.

  10. Wow, wonderful article. I would love to share my own experience to help you all out. One of my daughters spent a year with another agency doing little to nothing in the way of bookings or even castings. Within a month of switching to mystarkid, they had her booked for a spring print ad campaign for a major national retailer. You can
