North Idaho Local Life: Artfully Baby Photography by Lacy McCormick

Sponsored PostIdaho

I was over-the-moon excited when I was contacted by Lacy McCormick, owner ofย Artfully Baby Photography, about her taking pictures of my kiddos this Christmas..! I immediately went to her website to check out her online gallery and was incredibly impressed by her past work, I could not wait to see what magic she could work with my own kids! Let me tell you…they are pretty difficult to photograph right now. The boys make weird smiley faces and Natalie refuses to sit still long enough to even get a non-blurry picture! I was interested to see how the whole process would go with Lacy and I have to say that it went pretty darn well; WAY better than I was anticipating (considering my wild, crazy and uncooperative hooligans).. Just see for yourself!

I gave the boys a nice, long pep-talk on the way to Lacy’s studio and promised {bribed, more like it} frozen yogurt if they did a good job listening and giving good smiles. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was still a bit nervous about how they would do but when we arrived, Lacy had it all under control and made the boys all excited to be there! I was very impressed with how she had everything planned out; there was really not waiting time for the kids to get bored, they were always on the go, to a different set-up or pose. It was very well planned and the short shoot was about 40 minutes or so, perfect for the little kids!

Natalie, on the other hand, was fairly difficult but again, I was very impressed with Lacy’s patience as she tried to wrangle her to get a good shot. Lacy also brought a few snacks and some bubbles to help keep her occupied, which helped a ton! I was so, SO happy with the few shots she got of Natalie, even with her being a wildly difficult toddler! There wasn’t a photo of all three kids together but I was more than happy with the shots she got of the boys paired and then Natalie by herself. All of the grandparents got photo gifts with these pictures this year {I guess technically, it was last year..weird}ย for Christmas! They all went crazy over the kids’ adorable pictures and I got to tell them where we got them done!

If you live in the North Idaho/Eastern Washington vicinity, I recommend Artfully Baby Photography whole-heartedly and I will definitely be taking my family back to Lacy again soon! She definitely knows what she’s doing; her Photoshop work is wonderful, the colors in the pictures are sharp and bright, her poses and props are creative and super cute, and she is an all-around friendly and upbeat photographer who is a mother herself who knows how to get the little ones to do what she wants! I love that she has lots of specials, during the holidays, for mini-shoots. These mini-shoots are perfect for the kids, and their shot attention spans, as well as very wallet-friendly for the parents! make sure to follow Artfully Baby on Facebook to keep updated and to get more information about upcoming deals and mini-shoots!

Thanks, Lacy, for theย tear-inducing photosย that I will cherish forever! ๐Ÿ™‚
