Smiles are Contagious – Waterloo Child Photographer

Em is wearing a t-shirt today with a smiley face that says “Smiles are contagious”, it seemed appropriate for this post with two adorable, smiley kids. Em goes to a Coop Nursery School, as part of a coop school, it is up to the parents to help with duties and fundraising. I’m currently working on the yearbook. I also decided to help raise money by doing mini sessions. Here is one from this past weekend that tickles me pink. Haley is in Em’s class and she’s always so sweet and happy. Her brother, Carter seems to be of similar character, though maybe a little harder to catch with the camera.
I read a blog post this morning on The Creative Mama, it was all about capturing the moment, no need to worry about everything being perfect. It rings true, especially with kids this age. After doing my 365 project last year, I have a great appreciation for bottling up those moments, the laughter, the love. The important stuff! The blog post made me think of this session because my goal was just that, capturing these two wild spirits in action. Haley and Carter were so much fun to hang out with, even more, I love that their mom asked me to just take them… Ummm yes please, go relax, enjoy a break. Photographing kids is always easier when they aren’t distracted by their parents.
Enjoy a few fleeting moments bottled up.
