This little lady is just amazing to photograph. The 1st time I photographed her was for her 2 year old milestone and she was super shy but was probably the easiest 2 year session I have ever photographed. She took direction, posed and gave me so many amazing smiles. Part of the reason why I don't like to do back to back sessions is because some kids take a bit to warm up. If we just jumped in and rushed the session we might have missed out on amazing smiles and connection between them and the camera. I try to build relationships with kids so that way they don't view the session as something forced but something they look forward to each time they come in. I want them to be comfortable. Ms. Ellyn is definitely on the shy side but over the couple years she has become very comfortable with me and has that smile from the time we meet til she leaves. At this orchard session, she rocked it the entire time despite the mosquitoes and gnats swarming us and best of all, I got a hug at the end as well. Here are some of my favorites from her session. I love watching her grow.
