This expressive little girl came in as part of our “Be in our front window” promotion. We wanted to do something different, so I borrowed a lab coat and a stethoscope from wife and we had the girl bring her teddy bear. The concept for this child’s portrait was a “teddy bear check-up”. She played along very well and we created some great looks.
I had the privilege of photographing Debbie’s wedding several years ago. She has kids now and brought them in for a Christmas session. Children are always a challenge, but when you put two together, it compounds the challenge. You just have to work with them and let them have some fun. It is very much, “go with the flow.” My concept when I talked to her on the phone was to do something with them reading a book. After we jumped them up and down several times, they settled down enough to look at Christmas book together.
I got to photograph the CUTEST one year old girl the other day. Her mother had called earlier in the week and said she had few days off and needed to get this done. We managed to find a time in her schedule and we photographed her daughter outside. The variety of expressions we captured was amazing. The little girl just had fun looking at things and smelling flowers and the images were a great representation of her at this age.
