Way to go grandma! Charles is now a part of our birthday club because grandma purchased a gift certificate to give to mom and dad. We have done photos for her daughter that lives out of town so the birthday club wasn’t right for them. However, her son lives in St. Louis so she had the idea to give them this gift certificate as a baptism gift. Even though Charles is 6 months the birthday club is still a great deal because it includes 16 free sessions, as well as, discounts on prints and digital files. When mom arrived with Charles he had a smile on his face ready for photos, but we could tell that he was really looking around taking in all the new surroundings. With the snowy weather they had not been out of the house much so mom could see that Charles was so excited to get out and about. He is almost getting to rock star status for sitting up and really impressed us with his skills. But of course, we had some chairs and supports for him to use during the session. He really loved our fuzzy rug and wicker chair – well we assume he did because he kept trying to eat them. It must be those teeth coming in! Grandma was even able to join us for part of the session, which Charles just loved. After capturing some smiles in his first outfit mom changed him and we got started on outfit two. Charles wasn’t really a fan of this one, or maybe he was tired of our tricks. We did however bring out a mirror so he could look at himself instead of us. He loved that! He even gave himself some mirror kisses, it was very cute. We know we got some great smiles during his first session with us. For the next one we talked about an outdoor session this summer. I bet Charles will enjoy the change of scenery and will again be a happy baby.   #ravettaphotography #stlphotographer #birthdayclub #studiosession
