Most of my clients know that I'm not a "say cheese" type of photographer. I love photographing children no matter what their mood is. Most of the time the mood is fun and playful, but then you get the times where they are cautious and sad. My little guy was NOT in the mood for pictures but I took them anyway. As a mom I love these pictures because it reflects his personality. As an artist, I just want to capture a feeling and bring out emotion in my images. I love these so much and they are easily counted among my favorites. So the moral of the story is don't stress if your child isn't in a good mood during a photo session, because I'm sure we can walk away with some sweet little gems you weren't expecting.
