Every day, your children change and grow. Itâ€™s amazing and a bit overwhelming for parents to witness â€“ how quickly your little ones become big ones. A photo session with your child lets me capture these memories for you, preserving each special stage and beautiful age.
As a mother myself, I am always seeking photos that encapsulates my kidsâ€™ personalities. A shy glance. An effervescent giggle. A generous smile. These moments come when parents and kids are relaxed, the setting is casual and comfortable, and children are allowed to be themselves.
With my little subjects, I treat photo sessions like a playdate. We start off getting to know each other but before long, we'll be great friends. I might sing songs, blow bubbles, or ask about their favorite things. Iâ€™ll follow them while they climb on the monkey bars or get down on the ground while they pick dandelions. With older kids, I like to talk with them and find out more about their personalities. Either way, thereâ€™s no rushing, no asking anyone to say â€œcheese.â€ At times I will direct them to look a certain direction, to run towards me, to climb to the top of a slide, perhaps as I look for opportunities to catch their unique expressions naturally.
