Anna + Will kick off the spring portrait season. Their session is a great reminder that your home is an ideal location for photographing toddlers and young children. They are comfortable in their surroundings, it’s easy to take snack breaks and you capture them in a place that will be meaningful to you in ten years. Don’t worry about clutter in your home (a good photographer can easily hide that). If you think it’s too dark, never fear — we can find and use available light anywhere. The key to a great portrait session is happy kiddos first – it’s easy to ensure if they are in a familiar place. Fortunately, I didn’t have to worry about any of those obstacles here — Anna had a beautifully lit bedroom and we were able to venture out into some open shade in the middle of the day (another plus is shooting when the kids are at their best vs. sunset). They come from a gracious and loving family and it was a joy to spend my Saturday with them.
