Last shot first.

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!

    Michelle Henrick - Here’s some blog love for you…those are adorable! I too love the last shot. I notice that the last half an hour is always the best. I often wonder what others do on their shoots with children to get them looking so cute and natural. Glad to know you do lots of bribing as well. I had one yesterday where bribing was a must…a definite must!

    michelle murphy - Awesome photos Stephanie! I love the photo of the boy with his mom in the field! I need to have a head shot done of myself and would like something like this but in the seagrass maybe. It would be for my displays advertising etc. Can you email me a price list.
