Fall Mini Photo Play Session
What is a Fall Mini Photo Play Session?
I love this one, the first of this season. The session is short, super affordable, and therefore accessible to all. But more importantly it’s fun, it’s in a gorgeous setting, with different play zones to inspire my subjects. My photo sessions are quite different from a traditional formal shoot. I have a background in working with children, and love to see them shining, doing what they love, free and having fun….for a three year old, that is NOT sitting stiffly in front of a strange person with a camera that they just met. My goal is to engage, get the family trying some fun stuff, jumping off a log, climbing, throwing rocks into the lake, snuggling, making funny faces, chasing each other and so on. This gets everyone warmed up, and children and adults alike lose some of that self conscious awkwardness. Our photos turn out more candid, natural, and most typically it is at the end of our session that I get my favourite group shots. Everyone is feeling relaxed, they trust me more, and have forgotten a little that the camera is there. I hope you enjoy what you see.
