We arrived to the Dr. Seuss memorial on Saturday morning and it was gorgeous outside. We were meeting up with sisters that wanted all of their kids photographed together. There was a 5 year old, a 6 year old, a 15 year old and a 2 month old. Talk about a challenge! Especially since every day leading up to Saturday was 20 degrees or below so we were preparing for polar bears and small elves to arrive at any moment. I was ready to bust out my Eskimo outfit and furry earmuffs to conquer the frigidness that is New England in December.
While Pat and I were introducing ourselves to the family, I saw a little flash zoom past the corner of my eye. I then hear, “take my picture, take my picture”…I was all, who was that??? Was it the elf I have been expecting? Maybe he has the Canon 5D Mark II I’ve been asking Santa for Christmas. Trapped in my own self-centered thoughts, I turned around and the little boy was making awesome poses. He was running, climbing, posing and just like that, the photo shoot began!
The young kids definitely had no fear about having their pictures taken! They played around on the Dr. Seuss characters and we chased them around while they climbed on anything and everything they could find. The little girl was in all pink and had gorgeous golden locks. I may be a little jealous of a 5 year old’s hair. We also had the 15 year old get in there with them but for some reason, Horton Hears a Who was definitely not his thing! We made sure to get a few “cool” shots of him by himself. He was a really good sport about it though; plus his hair was ultra awesome…just don’t tell his mother I said so! Also, the baby didn’t make a peep the entire time we were there. That’s my kind of baby! Plus, she was adorable.
It was really nice to see how well all of the cousins got along. You can tell they are a really tight knit family. It reminded me a lot of me and my cousins. We grew up close together and are still close like that until this day. It looks like they’ll be the same way as they get older.
This shot was taken 2 minutes after we arrived. He was ready for his close up!
This one is my favorite from the day.
