One of the things I love about photographing kids is that they keep it real. I mean, on a whole level that I, as an adult, forgot about. If they don’t feel it, they ain’t doin’ it. If they aren’t in the mood, well, you just gotta roll with the punches. I wish we adults were more like that sometimes. Sometimes. 🙂
I first met this momma when she called me to photograph her sweet son’s newborn pictures. We quickly hit it off and I’ve so enjoyed getting to know her and her family over the last few years. One of my favorite things about photographing people over and over is that they eventually become so relaxed that the anxiety and frustration over the idea of not getting the perfect pretty picture just floats away. And then I get to see who they really are and I fall in love.
