We decided to do a holiday mini session with a photographer recommended by another mom in our neighborhood. I had high hopes but we weren't happy with the pictures. Yes a few of the kid pics are nice but several of them could have been better. We thought photographers come equipped with tricks to make toddlers smile but not this one and ZJ wasn't about to fake smile for a stranger. I also thought she'd give more direction on our posture/positioning.
This is IJ's "I'm pretending to not like ZJ kissing me" face. If we knew this is what had been captured we could have redone it and asked him to smile.
