As baby Max’s first birthday approached, his mom came to me and said they needed to book a photography session. But they wanted to wait for the first snow fall of the season. It is REALLY hard for me to get out of my neighborhood if it snows. In order for this session to work, it had to snow enough to last for a day or two so I could dig myself out. They decided they would come to my house (this is my backyard) and would park the car and walk if necessary. How cool is that? Fortunately, they didn’t have to! It actually snowed this year and STUCK for more than an hour. What we didn’t calculate, unfortunately, is that our boots had NO traction. This mom and I crawled on our hands and knees up the hill and were so exhausted by the time we made it to the top that we were shoveling snow into our mouths. And then, five minutes later, someone had to pee. We convinced her to wait a few more minutes and she did. It was just long enough to get some really awesome shots.
We brought her inside and snapped a few more photos of her brother. He is not my biggest fan, but he really likes his daddy.
What a fun family! I’m so glad we were able to make this work! Here’s to lots more snow in the future!
