Prestwick Portraits Latest Visitors

The portrait studio has been "put away" for a while due to the fact that Ricky purchased the mega roll of backdrops. It is so big that it makes it difficult to even get out of the backdoor when it is up.

Anyway, we had 2 recent requests for portraits so we opened up shop once again. Last Friday we had not one cutie patootie but 2! Madison Kate made her "first" appearance at the studio. The last time she was "here" for pics she was still in the belly so that doesn't really count! She brought her latest swim wear to model for us along with some very precious smiles!

As soon as Maddy was done in walked William. William is making a repeat visit to the studio. He came at 2 months and was quite the chub chub. Well, now he is 4 months old and even more chubby! He sure doesn't miss a meal. He is about 4 or 5 pounds lighter than Hannah! He was quite photogenic and gave us lots of great shots until we tried him in his swim wear. Seems he is a little more shy about bearing ALL for the camera so we cut our losses and moved on.

Hannah sure wanted to help "wrangle" the babies for the photos, but her idea of wrangling is not exactly the best. She wanted to climb on TOP of the ottoman with the babies and sit VERY close! She gave up after a few attempts and settled on just observing. Since someone was feeling of little jealous of her daddy shooting other babies, we broke out her suit to give her a little model time as well.

After working so hard we were starving! So off to Chick-Fil-A we went with William and his mom and dad. Hannah wanted to HOLD him so much. She just kept touching him!

PS Maddy's pics had a little bit of a lighting issue due to a few factors: 1. We forgot to get out the extra flash and 2. We had to turn off the overhead light b/c she really didn't care for it. She plans on coming back to the studio for retakes very soon!
