Just moving August images into archives and I thought I’d share a few of my favorite images from last month.
That was one hot morning! But the girls were so patient and gracious with their smiles.
What a sweet elopement this was. Were we outside the Faust Park with Carolyn Burke, the Elopement Connoisseur.
Mark is a Senior this year! First time I photographed Mark, it was for his bar mitzvah, he wore his pet snake around his neck!
Cover image for the Clayton Chamber Ensemble program at this year’s Midwest Clinic in Chicago. I can’t wait to see/hear them perform!
I first met Marie at a wedding. That’s right, she walked down the aisle just like any other attendant at a wedding. Marie is the bride’s seeing eye dog. I’m not sure what makes a good seeing eye dog, but all I know is Marie is very sweet, social and obedient. So last week I got the chance to photograph her again. She really is good at posing for sure; makes my job so easy.
I don’t know much about Yoga either, but Marie obviously does; she is showing off her skills for me. Well after all, her mommy does teach yoga class and Marie goes with her to every class!
Enjoy the pics of Marie!
I often have parents tell me that they can’t get their kids to smile for the camera or that their smile is forced or cheesy. My answer is – don’t make them smile. Let them just be comfortable in their own skin…and photographs. I love when kids bring their own style and flare to a photos session. Two sisters, Emma and Camille, being themselves all the way around. From the clothes they picked to the poses most comfortable to them. Aren’t they beautiful??!! I might be a bit biased; they are my nieces!
So let your kids be themselves. Let them smile they way they want, let them wear the clothes they love. Just let em’ be them-selves!
Want a portrait session for your kids? or a lifestyle session? Contact me and let’s get you scheduled.
