The Right Tone...

The tone of a session can make or break pictures!  I wish I could say I was one of those mothers that was totally relaxed and calming to MY kids during a session but I'm usually not.  I feel the pressure to get that great shot, to have them look right at the camera, to make sure their chubby little fingers and cheeks are clean.  But, as a photographer, that pressure can sometimes be damaging to their little spirits.  Time after time, I see what a positive impact it can make when mom and dad stay relaxed.

I've done a session with this sweet family before but kids can forget quickly!  It took a bit for them to get used to me running around them with my large black object.  But mom and dad were so patient and calm.  And you know what?  It worked.  The kids warmed up and started smiling in no time.   I was able to capture some pretty adorable shots of them.  And also learned my lesson...I am going to try my hardest to be calm with my little ones on my next session!  :)
