the windy day was a perfect one to meet and hang out with this little one and her family. she frolicked as the wind caressed her sweet locks and her new dress. mom and dad chased after her (and medium frog) and sat and soaked in the early spring afternoon. the sun was omitting soft rays onto all of our faces. it, combined with the gentle consistent wind, were just a perfect setting for this photo session. i plopped myself down with my two cameras (fitted with my 85mm 1.4 and my 70-200mm 2.8) and let the action unfold before me.
this little one was a bit stingy with her smiles and i had to be quick to capture them. once i locked one in it i knew it wouldn’t last as she was on the go! but i don’t think a perfect photo session has to be frame after frame of smiles or poses. on the contrary i find it so lovely to capture the family interacting: moms being moms….a quick glance, hug and a sweet smile to capture their bond…dads being dads–a gentle guiding hand as he watches his daughter (and medium frog) distantly doing said frolicking…
i loved letting the time flow as we meandered around the farm looking for the perfect light. normally i avoid shooting toward the sun but that wind…it seemed to carry me and my cameras toward it. and i loved the honesty in the results.
thank you to this adorable family for spending time with me and my cameras to capture your very first family photo session together. it was an honor.
