For these shots I was teetering on top of the highest a-frame ladder I've ever seen. I had to be as high as possible, and used my widest lens, to get all of them in the picture at the same time. It worked! We tried a few things and these were my favorites:
"stand on one foot",
"make a heart with your hands",
and "everybody jump". This was the trickiest - it's hard to just get a family of six to all jump at the same time, let alone a class of school-age kids. (To me that is what makes it especially darling.)
The kids were absolutely delightful - happy and playful and cooperative (which really helps when I have to kind of shout directions from the top of a ladder).
I didn't see the prints' final sale amount, but I hope it was a lot! We love love love our kids' school.
If you like creative children's photography, I'd love to chat with you about a session for your children! Give me a call or you can email and I'll get back with you as soon as I can. You can see some other examples of creative children's photography here.
If you like the photography you see, you may also be interested in signing up for my newsletter! I send it out something like quarterly, and I use it to announce things like Valentine's day mini-sessions (coming up soon...).
