One of the best parts about my job is capturing people in their element, for who they are, how they are together and the bond they share as a family. People often say, myself included, that 2 (and 3) year olds are by far the hardest age to capture. However, this year, I have decided to take a step back from this mindset and really change my way of shooting this age group. It’s about connecting with them, respecting their boundaries and earning their trust. Every single one of these little humans are different and require a different approach. I have enjoyed finding what makes them smile, I’ve enjoyed chasing them around, and I will even sacrifice some of my best candy to get a laugh!
This family session was so much fun. They are always so easy to work with, and laid back. Mom even walked down to the creek in her white pants and wedges (notice she isn’t in the photos – wedges and white only get you so far when it’s muddy). Jamie is one of my best friends from college and it’s always nice to catch up in person. Living 6 hours apart doesn’t always make that easy, so this is one time a year we can count on a date together. Oh, this session was so fun!
