These are my little cousins, Lofton (LL-Little Lofton) & Ja’marri (JE), and maaan are they a handful. I went with their mom, Shatavia, to get a few shots of them. I tried to do a shoot with them back when I was building my portfolio. I made the mistake of picking them up and attempting to do the photoshoot ALONE. They taught me a valuable lesson. You NEED assistance when trying to capture those precious moments with very busy little ones…especially when they’re 1 and 2. This time we went to the park and did a few inside. Enjoy!
& stay tuned for Shatavia’s maternity pictures when she’s a little further along.
I still prefer the on-location shoots, but as I stated in my previous post it’s nice to offer studio photos as well. This was my first real attempt at studio lighting and a studio set up with kids. I plan to improve on this aspect, but not too shabby for a first timer, eh?
Easily MY FAVORITE kid photo to date! They were naturals in front of the camera.
