This sweet family! I always find it challenging to photograph “older” kids in a different way than babies. However, I have found that if the parents lead by example by having fun with it, interact with their children, make them laugh, and just EMBRACE being in front of the camera, your kids will normally follow suit. I’m not downplaying how hard it is to “act” comfortable in front of the camera, I know it’s not! But allowing yourself to give into the process makes it more fun and enjoyable for everyone!!
There is nothing particularly special that this family did except for be themselves! They acted silly, gave lots of tickles, kisses, funny faces and even talked about “poopy” for Nathan :) Cassie is also a photographer so the pressure was ON ;) Just kidding. It is always flattering AND slightly intimidating to have another photographer in front of my lens. We all do things a little different but I think we all did a good job of just having fun and creating some beautiful memories for their family.
