Darth Bear and Mia Bear

Who knew how much fun two Build-A-Bears could bring to a mini session?! Darth Bear and Mia Bear helped to make the transition into this mini shoot quick and stress free.  I have known L and R for about a year and know that transitions can be tough, so I was super happy when we were able to focus our conversation on Darth Bear and Mia Bear as we made our way to the pile of leaves.

The key to a great smile is a great connection–and today’s connection was talking about the felt owl pieces that I brought and Darth Bear.  The owls hung on the trees, flew high in the air and became buried in the leaves.  Darth Bear turned L from a slow poke to a fast poke as he was running to touch the tree!Davoile wmThese two love their mommy so much and couldn’t wait to give her some cuddles after running.  This was such a sweet moment for this family as we journeyed together to find smiles that are sometimes hidden.  This is why I do this.  Smiles are meant to be shared!4 wm
