A little over a year ago a spunky and energetic little girl walked into my life for a camping mini. Since then we’ve bonded over a handful of sessions and became great friends!
The day of her second birthday session Claire was in a spunky, energetic, run and maybe you’ll get a photo of me mode. I’ve seen it time and time again… we chase after a toddler for the duration of their session and at the end Mom is feeling defeated. The session typically ends with a statement of, “I just hope we got one good shot.”. I always laugh in my head while reassuring the momma. These are the sessions that produce photographs that I love. Most of the time I rush home to edit a couple of images. I love the shocked text responses I get when momma realizes she loves the images. These are the sessions that make me love my job so very much! And seriously, running or sitting still, Claire is one of the cutest little girls on the planet!
And for all the mommas out there who’ve had a runner during their photos I speak for 99.9% of photographers when I say WE DON’T MIND. We love playing with your little ones. That’s how they learn to trust us, interact with our camera and we capture who they are in that moment. Wild tutu’s, crazy balloons and all!
A very special shout out to Segsworth Designs for Claire’s ADORABLE outfit. It was FANTASTIC y’all! Be sure to check out their site and support this WV small business.
