Last weekend I got to see so many happy familiar faces and many new ones as well!
They were all happy because they were holding cute fuzzy bunnies not because they got to see me.
Bunnies are some of the easiest sessions I ever do.
Everyone is happy.
The kids get to wear their Easter clothes more then once which makes Mom happy.
The kids get to snuggle fuzzy bunnies.
Plus let's face it I'm happy I don't have to do much work!
The bunny wrangler moves the talent and keeps them happy.
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY
Except something surprised me that I had never thought about before.
Half way through my sessions one of my regular clients walked through the door.
Round cheeked-big eyed-massive riot of red curls Paige.
I look up expecting to spend the next half hour gossiping and catching up with Paige's Mom and all I see is beard.
"uhhh Hi. Where's Becky?"
Paige's Dad had brought her.
Don't get me wrong he's a great guy but Dads usually only come out when forced into family photos.
"Her Mom is sick! She really wanted to come but just couldn't."
Well Paige rocked her session.
The biggest smiles. You could see the child's wonder at these small living creatures.
At the end of the session I turned to Dad.
"You know what I'm glad Mom is sick. Wait not that Mom is sick that she couldn't make it. Wait Wait Wait I love Becky but I am glad she gets to be surprised."
I had to stick my foot in my mouth a few times before getting the right idea out.
Becky was the only Mom in all of my bunny sessions that was going to be surprised by the images.
While I would never wish the flu on anyone I realized how rare it is for Moms to be surprised with photos.
I am going to make it my goal this year to try and reverse psychology all the significant others to think it is their idea to surprise their wife with photos after I harangue and sent subliminal messages through their Facebook, Youtube and email. New Life Goal.
