I get asked a lot if I still do portrait work. While it's true that most of my business is now food-focused, the answer is yes.
My favorite kinds of portrait sessions, however, are the ones where there are no traditional poses or stressed out parents begging their kids to smile. The best photos, in my opinion, are the ones where kids are allowed to be who they are and do what they do.
Recently, one of my regular clients told me her daughters were in a very girly stage and their favorite thing to do is to have tea parties. She asked if I would be open to the idea of her putting together a tea party for the girls and having me document the whole thing.
In my mind, this was the PERFECT photo session-- candid, playful, unposed, colorful, and FUN.
The icing on the cake (so to speak) was when Chloe broke out in spontaneous dancing at the end.
Too cute for words.
Speaking of portraits, the holidays are right around the corner and Fall is the perfect time to get your family photos done!
