We all know that I don’t photograph newborns. It takes a very different skill set than shooting weddings and lifestyle as well as it requires a LOT of patience. I’m a super fast-pace photographer with Zero attention span. Not really made for newborn. However when a client contacted me to photograph her kids , I know i was more than capable. I loved shooting these kids. SO MUCH ENERGY. They came into the studio, as it was still really cold outside and we shot on my white wall. When photographing kids, I believe that it’s super important to let their personality shine through. I will NEVER have the kids sit quitely and smile at the camera. They would never behave that way at home… so why force them out of their comfort zone in studio? Why would you even want to remember them all akward anyways? I like having them act silly and get comfortable with me and during the shoot, I’ll have them pose without them noticing… creating a nice mom-approved portrait.
