Let me tell you a story about this beautiful young woman and her amazingly clever boyfriend!
When she arrived she had a whole slew of outfits to change into (all organized impeccably might I add) and she was pretty speedy at this endeavour. Our shoot was going smoothly as we got some shots of her with her siblings and boyfriend.
When it was Anthony's turn to change he took quite some time! We were a little surprised. Then I did something I always do, I scan my clients for things like hair ties, cell phones in pockets etc. Sure enough Anthony had a square inside his pocket, I casually said 'Oh Anthony can you hand your cell phone to Dominique's mom for these photos?' He stopped, stunned, then slowly walked away from Dominique. I felt bad, did I say something wrong? I said 'or You can set it on my bag?' but he kept shuffling off and then smuggled it into his sock. We all kind of laughed at him, and moved on with the shoot.
As we were working, I asked them to pose facing each other and Dominique joked 'you could get down on one knee for one, maybe?' The following reaction ensued.
Do you see where this is going yet? Well kudos because WE DIDN'T. We all laughed it off, I cheered for getting a real giggle out of everyone.
The shoot continued in a beautiful way. We wandered around the property and changed outfits again.
He gave me this look when I said 'I think we have everything!' Then he said 'Well, I have one more thing'
Then this totes happened.
And gentlemen, that's how it's done!! And since this session their little man actually made a surprise appearance early! I am going to get to go see him tomorrow morning for a hospital session, I can't wait to see how stinkin' cute he has got to be! Congratulations to the newly engaged and new parents!!
