Allrighty, so, I still have quite a pile of family sessions from later last fall that I haven’t had the opportunity to blog! I plan to roll those out once a week until I’m all caught up, so make sure you check back in Thursdays to see what’s new 🙂
Photographing teenagers can be a daunting task for photographers… it’s not like chasing toddlers around and being goofy with them. Or is it? haha. To be completely honest, I’m learning that that shooting teenagers aren’t so different from photographing toddlers. When it comes to photographing lifestyle sessions of younger children I’ve had the most success when I take a bit of time to let them settle into the session and start interacting naturally with each other. Once they’re comfortable with me, and with a camera photographing them they relax and start to forget I’m there. Which is EXACTLY the way teens are, really.
I know this family fairly well, and I know this brother and sister are very close,and I also know they like to harass each other endlessly. Only a few minutes into photographing their parents, and suddenly the photo below was a naturally unfolding scene playing itself out behind me. It pays to pay attention to the peripheral activity!! They were “up to something” pretty much the whole entire session… I laughed a LOT during this photo shoot 🙂
This area is one of my favorite places to shoot in the Kamloops area, although this particular little corner was a new find for me. Love it!!
