Marcy, who was our photographer, was clearly a mother herself. She was phenomenal with my quad squad! I loved her techniques to get them to smile naturally, snuggle up with one another, and cooperate with what she was asking of them. I got to sit back and just enjoy watching my loves shine in all their glory!!!Two weeks later to the date, we received an email with the slideshow of proofs. The kids have probably watched this slideshow at least two dozen times. They love the music in the background and just seeing themselves and recalling the funny things Marcy had said that made them giggle. A few days later I returned to the studio to look at the slideshow with another Ivory Tree Portrait staff member, Lexi. There’s a private viewing room with a large screen. I really appreciated that she could put photos side by side that I was debating between. I wanted a photo of my two August babies for their yearly birthday photo, but also of my “quad squad” looking natural, and LOOKING at the camera (a very difficult task)! Once I told her the photos I chose to keep, she asked if I wanted anything specific retouched besides the traditional edits they make: whitening the teeth, make their cheeks rosier, and erase stray hairs. I asked to have my sons glitter tattoo remains taken off his forearm, shocking, I know, ha ha ha. Then I waited a week and BOOM, in my email in-box were our beautiful digital images!!!
