I love to capture children when they are truly being themselves. Nothing warms a mother’s heart more than seeing a little quirk, or a glance captured forever in an image. I like to use props that are child-friendly, age-appropriate, and most importantly fun! I always try to connect in some way before we get to taking “THE” shot. This is what makes my job so much fun. I never know when that moment will be, but I always seem to capture that one special shot amongst many.
Outdoor locations under natural light are always my preference, but working with lighting and flash creates a very different effect. Sometimes the shadows cast both on and by the subjects, adds a unique touch, and I enjoy working with these images as well.
