When booking her session Paula told me that she had “two highly energetic toddler boys”. Actually, in her session questionnaire she said something to that affect several different times. So I was prepared and while they were definitely energetic they were also incredibly cute and lots of fun. Sometimes during our sessions with active kiddos, it’s best to just let them be and do their own thing. While I chase them around with my camera of course.
I know a lot of people dream of family photographs with everyone posed wonderfully, looking straight at the camera with the most beautiful natural smile. But honestly, is that real life? When my kids are all grown and have families of their own, I want to be able to look back through photos and see the reality of what life was like at the time of those photos. And as a photographer, that is something that I strive to provide for each of my clients.
So while I definitely got some great shots of everyone in my lens looking at the camera and smiling during the Monlux family session, I also got a whole lot of the boys being exactly what they are today…two highly energetic toddler boys. Enjoy!
And…a little look into this fun family.
