Adventures of Jackson and the Wind

Jen contacted me wanting to do 3 month old pictures of her son, Jackson. She was also hoping to use some of the images for their Christmas card. I started the session and could not get that little guy to smile. I even used my best moves which means I act like a fool. This includes whipping my hair around, making crazy faces and noises, tickling, etc. He would not budge.

We got some cute serious faces but I wanted that smile.

He just wanted to go in the car and take a nap. I told Jen to come by my house the following week and we will get some images for their Christmas card.

It was like photographing a completely different child. Jackson was laughing at every joke I told him.

Jackson nailed it! Jen was able to get the best of both worlds…some serious 3 month old pictures and laughing baby Christmas pictures. Yay!! I love how their Christmas card came out.
