This fall has become an extended summer. Whewww-e! When I met my friends A and T at our photo location it was undeniably warm and humid for a mid September morning. We earned our photos through sweat, smiles, with no tears all laughter. My favorite thing about this session is how open to direction A & T's family were yet also so authentically themselves. It was easy to tune into their personalities and let them shine through in the pictures.
A hint for parents want authentic smiles from their children during photo sessions. Have something in mind that your child just loves no matter how obscure and interesting and then tell you photographer when your children might be distracted. I like to pull out these little gems incase my regular means of making a connection don't seem to have the child light up. For one child it was paw patrol characters, for another child it might be that they love garbage trucks, another it may be their older cousin. Oftentimes just the thought of their affection will bring a light to their eyes no fart joke can replicate (I've even been known to tell a fart joke if needed). No worries, if fart jokes are a no go, just let me know in your booking email :)
Can you tell which photos I may have used a special phrase in to elicit curious smiles?
