This next client is a perfect example of why I started Annabelle's. This mama has always been disappointed in studio portraits of her kiddos. From the minute she stepped out of her car, I could tell that she didn't have high hopes for our session. She confessed that she didn't think her kids were photogenic and that her favorite photos of them were pictures where they weren't looking at the camera. As a mommy, it kind of broke my heart a little bit. Her kids are absolutely adorable! Every mommy deserves great pictures of her kids. The problem is, most kids aren't really comfortable in front of a camera, especially when there's a total stranger behind it. Throw in a windowless studio with bright lights, and it's no wonder they freeze up and get that deer in the headlights look. That's why I love lifestyle photography. Kids get to play, explore, and have fun. Even though the portraits are semi posed, the kids tend to losen up a bit. And to be honest, I think the best photos of all are the ones I catch when the little ones aren't looking and forget I'm there. Here are a few photos from our session. Aren't her kids gorgeous! They're super sweet too. I'm so excited to have given her photos that she loves and that reflect her kids' personalities.
