People always comment on how patient I am on shoots. It’s funny, because for the most part I’m the most impatient person I know! But when it comes to photographing children, patience is a must! You don’t always get your best shots in the beginning and your shoots don’t just take an hour. Generally they go longer–way longer at times–and sometimes the best shot is at the end…after your run yourself ragged acting like a goofy fool and the parents have bribed their very last bribe. But it is worth it. It is so rewarding to get those amazing, heart stopping, breath taking shots. Today I had a shoot with this little guy who is the son of a friend and we do shoots a few times a year. Today we were going for the quintessential fall shoot with the hopes of nabbing one for their holiday card. He cracks me up! Even at just over two, he knew how to not look because we wanted him too and even held in his smiles and laughs to act oh-so-cool and unflustered by our antics! Anyway I am totally thrilled with the photos today and I’ll start with my very last shot first. It was the very, very last frame of the day and it happens to be my favorite, though there are too many to count! Enjoy!
