Easter Portrait

March 25, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

As any mommy photographer knows, the biggest challenge is taking pictures of your own children. Many of the sessions I plan out with my daughter are an "epic fail" and it is so frustrating! I have tons of beautiful pictures of other people's children and would like a few for myself. So I was elated when this session went smoothly. I even got her to look at me! I was so fortunate to have my mom with me for this one and her assistance was priceless. People ask me all the time how I get my daughter to "pose." Well I don't! I plan out a story in mind and hope that something interesting in the set will keep her attention for a few seconds. I usually just follow her around with the camera and wait for her to do something cute. This is what I would recommend for any busy toddler that can't sit still! For this year's Easter portrait, I really wanted to create a scene that looked like a magical forest with beautiful hazy/creamy light. Something simple and ethereal with just her and her Easter bunny.

She loves to pick flowers.

The Easter Bunny! This our family dog Fabio. He's such a sweet and gentle beast. I say beast because he doesn't know his own strength sometimes. He's a tough bulldog but is so great with Emery and other animals. I was skeptical at first of their introduction and thought he might try to "hunt" the rabbit like he would a possum but they have turned out to be friends. Wheew! Here they are taking a nap in the backyard.
