As we were waiting patiently for our turn to have our picture taken, Colton was in such a good mood. He found the footballs in one of the studios at Portrait Innovations. He made somewhat of a connection with one of the photographers. Unfortunately, the guy wasn't our photographer. (bummer) Our photographer was late and she had about as much life in her as a dead fish. I'm hoping she was new because she had absolutely NO CLUE. It's bad when the customer tells you what you need to do and how to put your set together. My word, Doug even had to tell her when a picture wasn't centered. Ugh! During our photo session, the girl wouldn't interact with Colton (a 2 year old, mind you). About as interactive as she would get was "okay, let's sit down or can you stand up". Ugh! I tried to help her out, Doug and I tried to act silly to get Colton to laugh. Honestly, I think he sensed how unfriendly she was and was not going to give her anything. FINALLY, another photographer came over and helped out by talking and acting silly to Colton. The girl was so determined to get a shot of Colton standing up in the white background. Ugh! I told her that we had enough shots and I didn't want to ruin his mood. I flat out told her that when working in this field, you have to work with what the children want to do, not what she wants to do. From my own experience, IT. DOESN'T. WORK.
When Katie and Alise were 2 years old, Laura and I had the girls dress alike in our favorite color, Crimson and White. Roll Tide! The pictures turned out to be adorable. I'm so glad that we decided to do the Bama theme. Colton just loved the fact that he got to hold and throw a football. LOL!
