This is a project that I've been wanting to work on for a few months. I take a lot of baby pictures, which of course are so important to do because babies grow up TOO FAST. But one thing I know I have been missing lately is beautiful photography of my older children. Enter my new favorite sort of session:
"All About Me"
All About Me sessions are all about your older (however old you want!) child. The theme is *THEM*! These are styled sessions, with the props provided by... you! I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this.
This beautiful tween loves art and nature. We gathered up a ton of stuff from her room and off we went to a shady spot that I have loved for a long time.
And I have to admit - I would love to curl up on a bunch of pillows, under a willow tree, and read a book. I would like to do that every day. :)
We brought her sketch book and pencils and crayons.
In the beginning I was doing the arranging and setup. It didn't take long before she was in full control of the set. :) She told me "It's all about ME!" Right you are.
I am such a willow tree fan.
And we finished up with: the glitter poof! It's harder to do than you might think, just because it's really easy to end up with a fierce face when blowing glitter. Takes concentration to smile and blow. :)
You can see some other examples of creative children's photography here. If you would like to invest in some meaningful photography of your child, and what they love, I'd love to talk to you about a session!
