Jennie, Brandon, Ellie and Kale

Little miss Ellie is the star of one of my favourite newborn sessions when I was photographing them a few years ago. I can hardly believe it's been over 2 years since I stopped! Ellie is a big sister now!
When Ellie's Mom, Jennie, wrote to me in August to ask for a session, I was debating not taking on any more photoshoots this year. I am SO glad I made room for just a few more! Jennie and her family are just beautiful, and having known Jennie from school years ago, I knew she is one of the kindest people I've ever met. I honestly just like her and her personality too much to say no! lol

Now, realistically we can't expect a preschooler and toddler to be 100% cooperative. They see beach, sand, sun, and water and they think "Play time!!" So, I made the decision years ago to make my sessions with children this age as low-stress as possible. I want my sessions to be enjoyable, so I play with the kids instead of trying to pose them. Ellie and Kale were totally on board with the idea of playing! We got some great smiles and silly faces out of them. They're such sweet kids, I hope I get the chance to work with this gang again! <3
