It has been a very interesting winter here in Pittsburgh. Normally, we have snow from January through March, but this year we've only had a few days where it snowed and actually stuck around. I got an email from mom Carrie back in November about scheduling a family session in the snow. We set a date for early January and decided to touch base as we got closer to see how the weather was doing. Well, of course we didn't have any snow on the day of their session. We rescheduled three more times before we finally got a decent snow and booked their session. But the day was so perfect for a snow session! It was baby Lucy's first time in the snow and she did a really good job! We made it a quick session because it was so cold, but we worked quick and got some adorable shots of Lucy and her parents!
Fun fact: my husband travels a lot for work, so when he's out of town and I have a mini session, I sometimes bring along my 2 year old daughter, Averie. For the Wiersma's family session, I asked to bring along my daughter and of course they were okay with it. As I was getting ready for the session, I explained to Averie that she would be coming to work with mama and we would be taking pictures of a baby. I told her that her job was to help make the baby laugh and smile. When I bring Averie along, I always put her in the Ergo carrier on my back, so when we were taking pictures of Lucy, Averie was squealing, laughing and playing peek-a-boo with Lucy from behind my back. While I couldn't see what Averie was doing, it was so funny seeing Lucy and her parent's reactions to Averie. It was so cute watching Averie be my big helper during the session! I was one proud mama!!
