Love comes in platinum: Hudson’s Valentine’s Day photo shoot!

Taking photos of my 22 month old mini-man is like taking a photo of a hummingbird. Constant motion! Unlike big sisters Gwenyth and Teagan, both glamour hams, Hudson Thomas has his own agenda. Really, mommy? Really? It’s all good. I bribe him with candy. Yep. No shame. If I’ve taken pictures of your darling, I’m sure some sugar-coated treat was busted out to encourage adorable eye-batting or head tilting just this way or that. In the case of a toddler like mine who would rather play with his trains, (or run back and forth behind your back-drop set up, thrilled and laughing, obviously knowing that you’re panicking, thinking he’s going to charge through it like a bull) – that candy was a legit bribe just to be still for a single shot. My platinum pumpkin did well, he did. He learned quickly that if he stood in the spot on the studio floor mommy pointed to long enough and looked at “the circle” (my lens), he’d be rewarded with a conversation heart. Smarty pants. Mommy’s baby! And his favorite flavor? All of them.

Gwen and Tea-Tea’s Valentine’s Day pics!

Thanks to Phil, my studio is ready! My ladies and I had a lots of fun in our Valentine’s Day photo shoot this weekend. Gwen’s middle name is Rose, and Teagan’s is Love, so our props were oh-so-fitting! And for the record, Gwen likes the taste of the green conversation heart candies, and Teagan likes the pink and purple ONLY. Hudson’s “studmuffin” pics are coming soon; hang on, toddler girls!
