These were taken a couple weeks ago, but I just realized I never shared them here! When the trees were blossoming beautiful on a late April evening, I decided to bring my girls out to a local tree farm for a little photo shoot. As a photographer, I’ve noticed it’s SO much more difficult to photograph my own children together than it is to photograph someone else’s children. I think since I’m Mom, they’re more comfortable and free to act out, whereas other kids see me as an authority figure, like they would a teacher, and are more likely to follow directions. It probably also has something to do with the fact that my kids already know my tricks for getting smiles and laughs, and while it still works on them individually, when I get them together something just happens and they don’t think I’m interesting enough to look at. Instead they want to run away, look away, scowl at me, etc. I think I got a few decent ones of them together, but I’m still looking for that money shot, the one that’s going to grace my wall on canvas for years to come. I’m determined to get it this summer, so stay tuned – it’s coming! For now, here are some highlights from our little spring photo session.
