A real photoshoot of my own kids! Who would’ve thunk-ed!
I did this after a couple years of talking with my clients when I photograph their kids! So often do clients ask if I have a ton of photos of my own kids, and I realize and embarrassingly admit that I don’t. The busier I am with my business, the more I don’t pick up my camera when I’m at home. I don’t mean it to sound like I don’t want to remember their milestones and such, but I’ve been doing that with my Flip video camera mostly. I do pick up a camera now and then, but really just to snap photos around around the house. Nothing frame-worthy.
So last weekend, between shooting a family and a winery, I brought my kids to a park and took photos of them! Yay!
Here’s a funny shoot prep blunder to share: I dressed Ian in preppy Janie and Jack clothes instead of his usual hand-me-downs and Old Navy attire. He loves hats, so I got him a cute newsboy cap. He looked so charming and handsome, except he didn’t have cute sandals to match! So he wore his Teva-like sandals. *sigh*
Ok, so check out some of my faves from this photoshoot, but pretend his sandals are cute brown leather ones!
My Monkeys: 4-Year Old Melia and almost 2-Year Old Ian
This photoshoot confirmed what I already knew: my own kids are the hardest subjects to photograph! It was my most challenging photoshoot to date!
Anyone have a favorite? I like the one of Melia holding up flowers in front of her face (that is SO her!) and the BxW profile shot of Ian (mainly the composition of the shot I find interesting).
