One of the things I love most about doing family portraits is you don’t always know what to expect.
I go to each session with ideas of a certain images I would like to capture, sometimes parents will have ideas themselves which I love as well, and sometimes, you just have to wing it.
There have been sessions where I have tried to slow down a crawler by distracting it in hopes to slow it down, or putting a baby in basket, or even giving the child an activity to do that will make for cute photos but this is the first time I have ever stuck a toddler in a tree.
It was hot, the area was new and there was just too much to explore and see, so it wasn’t until we put her in a tree that was made just for her that we got a good chunk of the photos from the session.
We also did a couple of the “belly” shots since baby will be arriving soon…
And these are the shots we got after she sat in the tree…
(It is close to the ground so she wouldn’t have dropped-her feet almost touched the ground at this point)
I wish you could hear her laugh…it is the best-from-the-gut- kind of laugh!
(she stopped for only a second, then started laughing again)
This one is my favourite our her in the tree, and the last one is my favourite of her exploring.
Thanks for having me come along again and get some shots pre baby!
