What a sweet family! I have to admit, when a client drives several hours for their session I feel extra pressure to give them amazing photos. This family was so relaxed which made my job easy. You would never guess there were hundreds of people around us at the Smithsonian. Their family bond is incredible and the children adore their Daddy. After this location we walked over to the Capitol and shot a few photos their.
The children told me what they are interested in and the projects they are involved with. I have learnt the power of listening to children. When you listen and take an interest in their lives, it forms a trust that they remember. For years! I’m always amazed at what children remember over time. I try to leave my sessions with a small treat, like a piece of candy or a sticker. Such a small thing, but it makes all the difference to a toddler. Enjoy their blush and navy session under the magnolia blossoms.
