On Sunday we were at the National Zoo for mini sessions, what a great location. I will definitely be setting up more sessions there over the summer. If you’re interested in knowing when, let me know and I will add you to the list. I was actually amazed at how both convenient and versatile the location was. We had a blast playing and following the light to great areas. First, Laith, excuse me, Zoo Keeper (as he wanted to be called) …
Erin and Benjamin were INTO the bubbles. I learned a valuable lesson yesterday – only make the “I have bubbles” announcement when you’re ready to lose control of the session. You never get that kid back and into you when there are bubbles around. I bet I could make a million dollars if I invented a camera that shot bubbles out of the side. Like one of those straws that winds down from a hat carrying two cans of beer…seriously. I think Nikon would be into this.
Oh, correction. If you have bubbles, it can be trumped by a water fountain. Benjamin found the button on the side of the waterfountain as mom, Becky, and I were talking. We had “finished” the shoot (everyone knows by now that I’m never really finished with a shoot) and I turn around, and Bam! fantastic picture opportunity. Becky didn’t protest, so I shot them while they played in the water. Then, as we’re walking back to the car, Becky says, “alright, we’ve got to run to a birthday party!” oops.
I love the photo of the baby in the basket. Adorable!
