I sometimes have to let families know to let the kids just go off and let them do whatever they want to do. You want to know why? Here is my reasoning.
I am finally posting some pictures I took at the end of this past summer of my sweet little girl. I absolutely LOVE black and white! There is something about these pictures that make me want to look at them for hours...over and over and over again. The reason why I love them so much? Because they weren't posed. None of them were! THIS is my daughter. I caught her beauty. I caught her emotions. I caught her being a little 3 year old girl. Her facial expressions, her curiosity, her joy, and her love for apple orchards. You bet I am making prints of every single one of these prints. Candid pictures are wonderful!
If we have a photo session, and I say to you, "Let them run off and do their own thing."
This is why.
