14 Mar Friday Focus: Holly & Arden
I am so relieved to have longer and warmer days and can’t wait when the next few weeks bring Virginia’s daffodils, dogwoods, and cherry blossoms! Monday evening’s 60-degree afternoon was perfect for these mom-daughter photos with Holly & Arden. When I first meet little ones I try to get a sense of their personality so that I can make the session fun for them. Most of all I want kids to be themselves, if they are shy that’s ok and if they want to run around or dance that’s fine too! I really didn’t need time to warm up with Arden because she seemed comfortable right away – so we started in the field with running and cuddling with mom while the sun was still high and then moved to another spot when it got lower in the sky so that we could take advantage of the golden diffused light. My favorite part was toward the end when a song came on my playlist that Arden liked – those moments seeing her dance with her mom were pure happiness!
