I met Lauren and her beautiful family on Sanibel Island for some photos at sunset. It was a gorgeous evening and the kids had so much fun. Little sis only wanted one thing, to sit and play in the water. So we rolled with it and let her do her thing, keeping her happy. Taking moments to capture big sis with mom and dad, and letting her have her time. One of my favorite images is big sis running out of the water. She did it about a million times and was having a blast.
Sometimes sessions don’t go quite how you envision them. It could be grumpy kiddos or dads, an overcast day, windy, or a very strong-willed 18-month-old. I have a few tricks up my sleeves that can usually work on grumpy pants, but sometimes we just have to roll with it. You know your kids best, I want you to jump in and do what you think will work. Photos aside, what will make your kid happy? Whether you grab them and toss them in the air, sit and tell them a story or sing a song, have a tickle fight, a game of tag or Simon says. And sometimes even resorting to a splash fight and playing in the water, even if you didn’t get those perfect portraits of everyone looking. My goal is got capture the love and connection your family has with one another. No matter the weather, you will walk away with precious family memories documented.
