Fifteen minutes is not a lot of time. That’s the time that I had to get some great pictures of the children that came out for my Easter mini-sessions. Normally I work pretty fast…I have three little kids of my own, so I’m used to making decisions on the fly and catching moments as they come. But sometimes being fast isn’t a good thing. Two year old Victoria had just woken up from her nap and wasn’t super excited about having her picture taken. Her mom told me that she was very shy and had never smiled for a photographer before. I was up for the challenge!!
This was one of the first shots I got and was almost upside taking it because she tucked her chin and was not about to look up at me. But there’s something about it that I love…
I think it was my proudest moment of the day. I wish I would have had more time with Victoria, but I was glad for our fifteen minutes and the hard-earned smile.
Next up was Natalie…she met me at the beach last fall and I was so happy to see her again! She is such an expressive little girl and now she can add chatty to the list of adjectives to describe her.
We were so lucky to have a perfectly sunny day and I love how it brought character to each of the pictures!
