I don’t get the chance to photograph teenagers that much. I’d say almost all my sessions are newborn/babies and children under 5. It’s ok. I can be goofy and ask kids to make each other laugh by telling potty jokes, but there’s something to be said with having clients that sit still and take direction 😉 Especially teen girls who seem to love the camera. So, I headed to Weston today for my session and started with, of course, the girl. Girls are fun, you can dress ’em up and they really like it. It’s sorta their own rendition of America’s Next Top Model. I brought my stash of hats (growing daily), some adorable knee high socks and we went to town. She was up for anything and lucky for me, my baby bump isn’t too big that I can’t get down on my stomach to get certain shots! Not for long! Now for boys….for me I find that boys can be little tough to get to open up and be natural. This guy didn’t love the hat idea and I really wanted to catch him off guard and embarass make him laugh to get some natural expression–still, a tough nut to crack. Throw in a dog and VOILA! Freddy, their beloved dog, added some real warmth to these photos. What I loved the most and is still making me smile is the family shot with mom and dad. They ALL donned a hat–add some jumping and laughing and you’ve got yourself an awesome shot. Hope you guys enjoy…It was great meeting you today!
