Maine can be hot and humid during the summer, especially in July. With the lack of rain and increased humidity, this July feels worse than in years past. As it turned out, my scheduled photo session was on a very hot day. Luckily I found a shady spot for my party of 13 who came to the DRA to have family photographs taken. To my delight the children were adorable and fun to work with! A pair of toddler twins, an 18 month old and a 4 year old made up the children portion of the group. How easy do you think it would be to keep the little ones entertained and in one spot? Once I found their sweet spot, which was letting the toddlers click the shutter button, we were golden!
As a family photographer I never know how the dynamics of each group will work during our time together. My motto is this: stay flexible, pay attention to cues and have fun! The youngest three took a little time to warm up to the idea of a stranger among them. While the "little's" were getting used to me, the eldest of the bunch shared his endless smiles and giggles. Lets take a pause from the words and dive right into this wonderful range of personalities!
an afternoon of fun at the dra
I would have to say that having 12 out of 13 pair of eyes on the camera is pretty darn good!
Little sis wasn't feeling very well but as you can see big brother is making her all better!
I hope you enjoyed your preview! Thank you so much for coming out to play on such a hot, humid day. You were all such good troopers! Can't wait to show you the rest!
