This session featured a very special (and gorgeous) birthday girl, Blakely. She celebrated 7 years of living with a photoshoot that solely focused on her. Blakely is one of five siblings, which led me to believe that she would be shy when it came to being alone in front of the camera. I could not have been more wrong.
It seems that we discovered some kind of super talent hidden in the sweetest seven year old. I usually spend a little extra time with the kids I shoot before we start. I get to know them, laugh with them, and gain their trust before we even start shooting. (I find this is important to do since I’m going to be sticking a camera in their face for an hour). I suggest poses as we go, and get great shots after they warm up. Blakely needed no suggestions, she needed no warming up.
She. Was. Incredible. I enjoyed every second of our session and getting to see the girl who’s kindness reaches far past her family of seven. Happy Birthday, Blakely!
I’ll be sharing a really exciting life update soon.
