This past Sunday I had two separate photo sessions and both focused just on the children. The first session was with Kirstyn's two children as well as her sister Steph's daughter as well. I don't think Kirstyn knew it going into the session, but I had actually photographed Steph's wedding a couple years ago. I absolutely love photographing children so I was super excited to get the session on the way.
When photographing children this young, you pretty much just have to roll with the punches and let them dictate how the shoot goes. Of course, I still got some good 'posed' shots with a little direction, but you have to be extremely quick and reactive as the moments they sit still are very fleeting. Luckily, I excel at taking candid photos, so I came away with a good mix of moments.
I chose Vickers Park for the location because it has the nice playground there plus an large open field. We spent most of the time around the playground and then we got a few photos out in the open area too. By then the rain started coming down so I we wrapped it.
It was such pleasure photographing both Kirstyn and Steph's kids. The were so well behaved and easy going it made my job that much easier!
