Children Photographer – Summer Dusk Session

As a children photographer, I love the magic in planning something a little extra special.  When I had the idea for the summer night series earlier this year, I could hardly contain myself.  First, as a child I can remember that time during and just after sunset having magic to it.  Running around not wanting the day to end and enjoying being outside with the last bit of light available.  Then came the fireflies.  We had so much fun chasing and collecting them.

My goal with these sessions is to try and capture that same magic!  Just by handing each kid a “jar of fireflies” the photo session seems to no longer be about pictures.  They want to play and look at the jars.  My directions are all about moving them into natural looking positions with these props.  These sessions are all about having fun and stress free!  Here is my favorite from a session last week.  LOVE!!!  You can see more from this session on my Facebook page.
