Hey little mommies out there. I’m getting ready to drop a BOMB on your asses! Here goes….your kids behave better with strangers! AKA…ME! Are you speechless? HA! Probably not. All us moms are fully aware of this fact. I remember sitting in front of Keaton’s teacher this year and listening to her praise Keaton for being, “such a great listener” and “such a teacher’s dream”.
The entire time I was thinking, “uh…who’s what? Are you sure you have the right mom/kid combo here?”
That’s just the way things go. Jay-Z has a lyric “you do mistreat the one dat you lovin'” So true brother J…so true.
So don’t fret when little Alex isn’t being a great little model when the session with me starts. Take Grant below…here’s his first shot & I’m sure what he was thinking:
When the above happens, he’s nervous, but I can tell that little man is curious about me and NOT too terrified…yet…I usually tell mom and dad to GO AWAY.
I don’t mean to be rude in any way. But its the best thing for the kiddo and for me. Your little one can start focusing on me….the weirdo with the camera….and I can start “working” aka acting like a fool to get some real smiles and emotions out of your little man/chica.
Here’s the shot after mom and dad disappeared for a bit:
We’re having a blast now!!!!!!!
With that said, I do understand that its hard to give up the control when it comes to our kiddos. I find myself speaking for my little ones all the time. Its good and healthy from time-to-time to take a step back. The above pics are PROOF of that!!!
I’m out hommies!
