Just breathe

Mar 25, 2020

I’ve mentioned a few times that my favorite images are usually the ones that just happen, the ones I wasn’t waiting for, but my happy trigger caught. Although I do get photos with everybody looking at the camera, I love the ones that are more natural, and sometimes, that means something like the photo above, on the left.

More often than not kids want nothing to do with photos. I have to make it fun! I sing, I bark, I tickle them… anything to get those natural smiles to happen. I guess it doesn’t hurt I love being around kids, and feel like a big kid myself. I’ve been asked by my little clients, more than once, if I can come over and babysit! And although my babysitting days have been over for many years,

If you’re having a session with me and things seem like they are not going very well. Just breathe. I got you!

So, lesson learned, sometimes all you have to do is just breathe, adjust, and voila!

Can you feel the happiness?
