So, in a round-a-bout way I’ve known Mary-Ann for years, but THIS particular year her son happened to be on my son’s soccer team. Lucky me! Mary-Ann is gorgeous, and she’s passed those genes down to her son and daughter. When she asked if I’d be interested in photographing her children this fall, I jumped at the chance. She wanted to take some informal photographs outside in her yard (which is also gorgeous!) and with the leaves beginning to change, it was a great decision. I have to admit, I was also quite excited to meet Annie!
Annie the 200 lb St. Bernard. (Check her out, she’s gorgeous, too!)
I love how I can arrive on location, get set up and start photographing shy, apprehensive children but as the session progresses I make my way through the awkwardness to the genuine personalities of the children I shoot. Not necessarily cheese-smiling, either – although I do love a genuine grin! But I think I love a peaceful moment just as much.
