If you were to asked me what was my favorite session to photograph was, without hesitation I would answer I love to photograph children. Children are know to be the most difficult to listen to direction and this is very true. I believe only certain people can say they have fun photographing children. As a mother you have to learn patience. I have always been a patient person but once I had my own child, I practice patience everyday. Over time I have learned that patience is a necessity in order to be a child’s photographer.
I do not like to take complete control of a child’s photo session, they have control over what happens. The best way to describe what a session with me and your child is a play date. My camera is only there to capture our play date. I enjoy jumping into their imaginary world and exploring it with them. A child’s imagination is like a black hole, it’s never ending.
I try to bring every aspect of their personality out of them. Are they shy around strangers? That is completely ok. I will be able to show their shyness at the beginning of the session but I strive for them to be that silly goofball you love by the time I’m done playing with them. I don’t hide behind my camera hoping and expecting for a belly laugh, I work towards that priceless smile. I try to make your child as happy as can be, and capture it all at the same time. So let’s plan a play date together.
