It's been awhile since I've done Mine on Monday, but with my new year's goal of blogging more, I thought this would be a great place to start.
In October, my sister-in-law and niece came out so we could take some cousin pics for the grandparents' Christmas presents. I also took the time to capture my little ones as well. They had a great time running through the pasture, and we caught some really sweet moments. And of course, we had some funny outtakes as well. It's hard not to when you're trying to photograph four little ones, ages 1 to 7. In fact, I admit, my kids are the hardest for me to photograph. I don't know if it's because they've grown up with a camera in their faces or if I just expect so much from them. But children are one of my favorite subjects. With clients, all I have to focus on is having fun and letting them be themselves. And over time, I've also learned that's best with my own kiddos too. They each have such different personalities and I just want to get it all because I know they are growing too fast! In the end, all our jumping around and silliness was worth it as we got some cute images of our kiddos. And as we were looking through all the proofs, we remembered how fun the whole evening was, evening with all the outtakes. Sometimes it's really the journey that you remember and not just the destination.
Little J, where'd you go buddy?
Oh there you are, throwing dirt.
Little Miss thinks you guys are crazy?!
Uh oh, he sees more dirt.
This is the one we picked for the grandparents. They were thrilled.
And here's one of my very favs from the day. I just love this one. The girls were off playing in the field and little brother was investigating the grass.
