Spring fever has hit me hard! Since we’re not going anywhere warm, the next best thing is looking at photos from a child session on a warm day! Last summer I had the sweetest girls travel all the way from Dakota, Minnesota to see me for some princess time. We started by trying on and selecting dresses at the studio. Then we ventured to Leo Rudolph Nature Reserve in Owatonna, Minnesota to have some fun.
Once we got to the park, the twirling and giggles started. They were little girls being truly carefree and having a ball. The most important part about taking portraits of young children is being flexible. Children at this age can react to the camera in many different ways so it’s important to take your cues from them and just go with it. And these two really had me going! I made my steps goal just by chasing them around the park. My favorite part about doing more of a lifestyle child session is capturing the kids how they truly are. The silly faces or the way they point their feet are the little details we try to hold on to as our children grow up. These sessions are always so much fun and it means the world to me to document it all for you. To book a session with me, I am always available by phone or email!
