I almost always photograph my boys when we do a limited edition portrait special. Last year, we did Mud Puddle Portraits for the first time I didn’t have time to get them in. I thought it wasn’t a big deal, since I had done portraits of them just a few weeks before. I WAS WRONG! When Thatcher and Ethan saw the images from the mud sessions, they both began whining and complaining that they didn’t get to do it! Honestly, Ethan must have reminded me everyday for a month that he didn’t get to do a mud session while one of his friends did!
I definitely wasn’t going to let that happen again this year, so they got a spot on the calendar for last weekend’s Mud Puddle Portrait Special. When my mom brought them in, they were literally jumping up and down. I have NEVER seen them this excited for photos before– EVER! They got dressed and raced out the door to the mud set. Most of the children I photograph for the mud sessions are a bit timid about the mud– its cold, squishy and most kids don’t seem to like getting dirty.
Here is the one before image I got just as they stepped into the mud:
And here they are just a few minutes later:These two images are what they each decided to do in the mud. Neither one was told to do this– we just let them go wild!
Yes, its an insane mess. It took forever to get all the mud out of Thatcher’s hair. But they had the best time with their photos and they keep asking to do it again. I love that I got images of them being their normal “wild boy” selves. While these are far from the “perfect” images of posed children that so many people prefer, they are perfect to me. They capture who these two really are– and how fun it is to just be a kid in a giant mud puddle!

I grabbed my two crazy babies and our even crazier fur-baby for a quick session on the Pumpkin Patch portrait set last week. Its always a challenge to photograph your own children… especially when one is in the midst of his “terrible twos” and the other is a puppy. 🙂 Despite the chaos, we did manage to get a few of everyone together and a few fun ones of the boys alone! On another note, this has to be my favorite Pumpkins set we have done yet! Now to start thinking of the holiday set!
Its hard to believe that the summer is already drawing to a close! To celebrate those last lazy days, we have a Summer Fun Special on August 4th from 8am until 1pm! Join us outside our studio for a great summer mini-session! Mini sessions are only $29 for up to three siblings ages 6 months to 12 years. Sessions are booked first come first serve, so be sure to contact the studio as soon as possible to schedule your time 850.339.5799!
