I met the Johnson Family last year.
Our first meeting was in a hospital room.
Melissa had just given birth and had hired me to do a Fresh 48 Session.
For those of you that do not know what a Fresh 48 Session is I come up to the hospital and photograph the older siblings and grandparents meeting the baby for the first time.
Melissa and Luke had come prepared.
As their three older children bounced into the room they had presents from the new baby for them.
Each child received a bag with clothes, toys and books.
As the new baby needed tests I got to do the best part of my job.
Sit on the floor and read to the kids.
I told them all about my son and his favorite book at the time, Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs.
The book was funny for kids and had enough adult sarcasm to keep me entertained as well.
In it instead of porridge Goldilocks eats three gigantic bowls of pudding.
Fast forward a year.
The Johnson Family shows up at my studio for family photos.
Not only do the kids remember me, they scour my book selection looking for the Goldilocks book I told them about!
What kind of an Aunt am I!!! It was not there!
After the session I went home and through the magic of Amazon I ordered not only the book to be delivered to their house but a package of chocolate pudding to make with it!
I then went about my day.
A week later I see a strange post on Melissa's Facebook feed.
"Did someone send me pudding?"
"Is this a thing now?"
Amazon had sent the pudding on ahead of the book which would arrive a week later.
I was about to explain but when I looked at Melissa's feed it was hilarious.
Her friends were having too much fun running with it.
I am sure after the book came she figured out the pudding was from me as well.
I now want to send random pudding to my clients to see what Three Stooges antics ensue. LOL
