Just before the afternoon errands, Grace and I dashed outside for an impromptu photo shoot. She cracks me up. She’s really into posing with her head tilted and her smile spread so wide her nose scrunches and her eyes squint up. Today, she was into bending her knees sorta squat-like and resting her hand on her cheek.
I love having these photos stored up in bulk to look back on – her personality shines through. But, sometimes, I need a specific angle or view when I’m photographing an outfit and not just my child. One thing that I’ve found to be especially helpful is to distract the kids from the camera. Today, I told Grace to jump; I counted to three and she sky-rocketed into the air.
Many times. I got some really fun shots of her in the air – I also got some really cute, natural pictures of her in between.
Try it. It’s an easy way to get little ones to loosen up and give you a variety of “poses” without needing to ask them to change the way they are doing things.
Grace is modeling the Botanicals and Birds Flutter Dress, which will be available in the shop later today.
