As photographer, I have realized that trying to pose little kids for pictures can be very difficult at time and even frustrating. But time after time I also realize that its the candid shots that do the best job of revealing their unique personalities. This photo shoot was no exception. In particular, I am thinking about the close up pictures of Makayla and Mia. When I sat the two girls down on the bench I imagined both girls looking at me smiling with the sun rays coming through behind them and don't get me wrong it would have been a great picture, however, what turned out was so much more precious and unique. It captured their personalities and their relationship in the moment. Taking the pictures on the tanks was also fun...not sure of many places people can go and climb on tanks and have family photos taken of them. Thanks Mark and Maralee for this fun shoot.
I really like how the cartwheel photos turned out with the sun behind her and the shadows in front.
I like the tank photos.
