I decided recently to launch a themed extended minis series throughout summer this year and the results are so much more than what I ever expected. So far I have gotten to work with some amazing people after deciding to launch this minis series. One of these people were little Ms. Alivia and her family. Alivia is turning 2 soon and her mother reached out to me about booking my first sunset mini.
Often times with the little ones I have to do some prompting to get that smile to come out in front of the camera. This wasn't the case with Alivia. Her bright eyes and smiles instantly popped out making for some amazing shots. Something about getting to see and capture these natural moments is so special to me.
I've noticed lately as I have begun to blog more my attention to small minute details on sessions. My mind frame has now shifted to the idea of capturing special details to showcase the individuality of each and every session that I do. Not every photo has to be of the face to convey a sesense of authenticity and emotion.
One of the best ways to get the kiddos to enjoy a session is to play some of their favorite music. As soon as the soundtrack of Mulan began to play Alivia's eyes lit up and a giant smile came across her face.
This summer through the course of my sunset minis I hope to have many more great experiences like my time with Alivia. Getting to capture these special moments with the little ones is so close to my heart. Each and everyone of them are so full of emotion and unique in their own way. My job is to simply capture it.
Thank you for kickstarting my sunset mini sessions with me... I can't wait for many more to come!
