This past weekend we were able to grab a portrait session at Portrait Innovations! It has been at least 7 years since we've had any kind of photos done professionally...yes that means baby bear wasn't even born yet! The photos we normally get done are during the holiday season and the places we've been, never really make it a fun experience for the kids.
We had the best experience ever at a portrait studio!
From the moment we stepped into the Portrait Innovations studio it was warm and welcoming. They were decked out with fall decorations, had plenty of plush comfortable seating and even had a Lego table to keep the kids entertained. It wasn't long before it was out turn in the studio, and to my surprise, the little ones were excited to get going (although they were really waiting to get into their Halloween costumes).
I just loved the fall backdrop, but it's no surprise since it's my favorite season. The photographer was very patient with us and was able to get some great photos with the kids smiling! They never smile for me!
Some Final Products:
We are not the easiest family to photograph...but we had such a good time at our session! My littlest is already asking to go take photos again! We even got some holiday cards...yes we went with Halloween cards...because we just love Halloween!
