Little people have such Big Personalities and I try to capture the whole range. I make it my business to make them laugh because laughing photos are glorious and you may not have any. But their serious side (or relaxing pose) is also precious, and this may be hard to capture because kids are so used to fake smiling when you turn the camera on them. No fake smiles here! (My assistant was working hard to entertain them and it shows). Also, when you allow kids enough time to just hang out and be themselves, you get unexpected gems like a little girl playing with her hair and looking like the model for Vogue.

You may think grey is dull or that it won’t photograph well, but quite the opposite is true. Especially if you have a large group, the more contrasting colors and patterns you add to the mix, the more they start to clash, and the attention is stolen away from the faces. So here’s a grey palette that includes plenty of textures, shades, and subtle patterns to make it lively and interesting while also understated and elegant. Always remember to reserve the brightest and most playful outfit for the smallest body so it will be more of an accent and will not overwhelm the picture.
How much love and laughter can we fit into a session? Come find out! Weekend slots filling up fast.
I love how playful they all are, how the girls are loving on daddy and that I captured how comfortable they all are rolling around together. I was using a magnificent new lens–Canon 85mm 1.2–which makes the backgrounds buttery soft and painterly. I enjoyed using reflections in the water to create an unusual and richly patterned effect. The clothing colors were selected to convey the brightness and joy of the occasion—which was a reunion—and the girls’ lively personalities; the guitar, lake, and sunset set a beautiful mood as they round out the color palette.
