The perfect shot

Oftentimes, we as photographers and parents are hopeful that the session will present “the perfect shot.” On the day of the shoot, you are prepared. You have your camera and lenses ready or the perfect outfit was selected and ready to go. Then you wake up and your child is feeling ill! It’s up to the parent whether to reschedule, and I know from past experience that it’s always best to do so. Ill children don’t feel up to doing anything except going back to bed. It’s hard on the parents and photographer because you have envisioned getting “the perfect shot.” Often times, our reality fails to live up to our fantasy. It not only happens to parents, but it happens to me, too! I don’t leave every session feeling great (such is the predicament of working with kids three and under). However, there are times when I get home, plug my camera card in, and Voila! I see a beautiful shot that I didn’t even realize I got because of the chaos that usually ensues during a session with a little one. 

I was excited to see this family again, as they were instrumental in getting my business and word of mouth referrals going.  There is a lot of pressure to perform because you honestly can’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for you.  Of course, their oldest little boy woke up sick!  I did get one that I liked of him, but then the show was over, and he went back to sleep.  His little brother and mom and dad were more than happy to sit for me, though.  I just love the little guy.  He is such a little lover boy, and I can’t believe how much he’s grown since his newborn session.

Flower Power

Originally uploaded by whitecottonstudio.

I had a great time with these ladies even though I was on the tail end of a head cold. I was thrilled to get to work with these teenagers and mom. The girls had a lot of spunk and are just about as crazy as me (which says a lot!).

The girls both had incredible eyes, and I knew it when I found the perfect spot with perfect light to really make them come alive. That’s what I strive for…to bring out the best features in all of us. Of course, not all features are ready for the camera. Just remember to paint your toes when I show up! You never know what will happen.

Newborn Session

This little man from this morning’s session was such a great sport. I haven’t had a newborn session in awhile, so I was pumped! Thanks to mom and dad for the repeat business as well.
