As always it's an honor to be asked to photograph a family portrait for another photographer. I love being able to capture beautiful images for someone who rarely gets the time to be in front of the lens.
However, beautiful family portraits are sometimes hard work to get. As most of you with children know, your babies aren't always camera ready. Erica of Erica Lowenguth Photography, knows what I mean. Again, even a photographer's baby can have a bad day.
Even though her little one wanted nothing to do with me, Erica persevered. She didn't get angry about it. She knew that by doing that, it would only hurt the situation. She was patient and loving, and she hugged them tightly until finally we saw some smiles towards the end. I could learn a lot about being a better Mom from her!
It was hard work, but this Momma's worth it, and deserves to have beautiful images of herself with her babies. Thankfully, I believe we were able to achieve that goal! ~ Erin
