Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a family and portrait photographer based in Washington Dc. I am a Christian, wife, and identical twin. I love lilacs, candles, rainy days and honesty. I love finding joy in simple things.
“Photos should let you take a glimpse into a soul.”
Shy children just have a way to my heart. When they are bashful and can hardly make themselves look at me, it makes me want to help relax and move them into a comfortable zone that they can let you see into their soft and sensitive hearts. The photos below are a few of my favorite as a photographer. I was a bit nervous for this session. You see, I know this little girl so well. I sit her once a week and it took her weeks to gain her trust. She’s shy, introverted and does NOT like cameras. Her mother booked a session with me for a present for her father…so sweet! During any session it’s so important for a photographer to read personalities and respond to help make clients comfortable.
I talked to her quietly and asked if she could look at the camera for just one second…and we got this! Anyone can look at this and see a pretty photo, but when her Mama looks at this, it’s priceless! I wanted to share with you a few things I do to help gain their trust and create beautiful photographs.
I hope you find these tips helpful. Remember, the way we treat the small children we photograph is truly a big hug to our clients and they won’t forget it. <3
