Carefully and with long lenses. Outdoors.
For this cute family, we went to the park and found a shady spot.
I asked the family to bring a blanket and any small props they may want to include. Due to COVID, I ask the family to supply anything that they would come in contact with. It’s not worth the risk bringing anything athat may be shared between clients.
And then we start. With a mix of posed and candids. Starting with posed helps to break the ice and get everyone relaxed. This little one was less than a month old! So cute!
And then we go with the flow. Generally, the youngest member of the group sets the pace. In this case, she was so chill! She must have gotten that from her parents. The session was so easy and fun and we were able to get great images!
Don’t let the milestones slip by. There is a way to mark them, to remember them, to keep them. It may not be the way it was in the past. “The art of life is a constant readjustment to our surroundings.” ~Kakuzo Okakaura
