This is one my favorite pictures of a family photo session we did recently. We fell in love with the intensity of the girl's beautiful eyes that are well complemented by the green background. It was taken outdoors, using only natural light and a reflector. This was a very rewarding experience. Her brother was very sweet and excited about the photo session. Emilie was sweet and friendly but she wasn't as interested about the pictures as her brother was, but she was intrigued. So, we spent some time walking around with her and her brother before we took pictures. We even saw them sharing some time with some of their friends playing outside. That helped them to feel more comfortable with us. They talked to us about their interests, their cat and details about the backyard. It also gave us an opportunity to scout the area, and to see the direction of the sun and the quality of the light. Taking that time with them was key. It was very important for us that this was a positive experience for the family. That ultimately is reflected in the results of the photo session.
