When I met with mom for our pre-session consultation, I never even wrote anything down. All she really wanted was to capture S’s spirit. She wanted her to have fun, be herself, and hopefully catch it all on camera. I always tell parents that no matter what we do for a set, or how many props we drag in, their favorite portrait of the whole gallery will always end up being an expression that resonates with their heart. It’s that certain look that tugs at you… every time… and you want to remember it forever. Mom already knew that was what she wanted from our session, so while I gathered all of the toys to bring them into the shooting room, they weren’t so much props as they were, well, just toys. Toys for S to have fun and be herself with! We ran. We sang. We danced. We played telephone. I had so much fun spending time with S and I think we captured all the fun she had too. Enjoy your sneak peek!
