We started with brother photos. Despite the two prior photo sessions, we still only have about two decent professional photos of the boys together and I was determined to try yet again. We walked across the street to the lake and got both boys to semi-cooperate. We bribed Brantley with a "special treat" that I, of course, forgot to pick up at the grocery store. Thank goodness for some leftover Easter candy.
I'm decently happy with the photos. Both boys are looking and they are semi-smiling at the same time, which is a huge victory, but the pictures don't seem to POP in my opinion. Maybe it's because I'm getting better at taking photos myself so I have really high expectations. Or maybe because we were in our own neighborhood and there's nothing exceptionally special about the setting. Who knows. I still love the photos because they feature two of the most handsome little boys I know. And I think they portray Brantley's love/protection his little brother just perfectly!
After 20 minutes at the lake, we headed back home for a few more of Holden himself and the cake smash! Bear in mind, he wasn't feeling great, but I still think she captured some adorable photos of his sweet personality.
