So, this shoot – though last of all waiting in line – gets to jump ahead, hailing as most recent. It was so nice to be able to see this friend from the past and her family again… particularly meeting new baby Penny! And while little Penny was the intended star of the show, we jumped right to big brother, Ayden, in a dual-purposed attempt to catch him before his love for the limelight faded and get the little beauty queen fed and freshened up.
This shoot was an epitome of the need for both parents and photographer to keep an individual mindset to pictures. Stereotypical and “trending” poses are only cute if that’s how your family is jiving. Steve and Steph were great about handling the kids and still popping ready with beautiful smiles. We made valiant efforts, rolled with the needs of the kiddos, and ended up with a fine collection of adorable, character, and the Cripe family. Congratulations on your beautiful family, Steve and Steph!
