There have been limited opportunities for me to practice my portrait photography this Winter. Fortunately, I gifted my freakishly photogenic 2 year old niece with some stylish Christmas clothes so photos were borderline mandatory! Don’t be surprised if you see her in the next major Gap or Target ad.
Candid moments are what I enjoy capturing most. Even during posed shoots, catching a laugh or a silly moment are my favorite. Children seem to help us be our most candid selves. They do something special to a family; they help us be more selfless and remember how to play.
I’m not sure if other photographers/aspiring-photographers feel this way, but i’m almost always nervous before working with a new client. I guess because I know how important these photos are to them — even if it’s family or friends. After all, hiring a photographer means this moment is important to you, a feeling that should be realized by whomever you chose to capture it.
