As a photographer I feel I am never done learning my craft. Techniques evolve, equipment improves, and trends come and go. In order to serve my clients in the best way I possibly can I am always looking for new classes I can take. So, recently I started a month long course on POSING! Part of the class includes submitting an image for critique each week that fits within that week's assignment.
Last week we were focused on posing 2 or more people together. I took to Facebook looking for a couple cute kids to "model" for me and help me practice. After a few selections and last minute cancellations I contacted Krystina. She was so sweet to make it in with her kids on such short notice, but I am so glad she did because their session is one of my favorites.
A lot of times kids can be pretty shy when they meet a new person for the 1st time. I usually spend the first part of our session warming them up to me, chatting about their favorite things, school, their friends. When Skylar and Shae came in though I knew they were just going to be so much fun right from the get go!
