Family-Sessions with little kids
Sarah and her family won a family-session at Facebook. Sarah was really happy to be able to have a free family-session with her husband and the three little boys.
We met at the visitor center of White Sands National Monument and then drove to the place we have chosen. The children loved the sand and started playing and running around immediately.
Photo-Sessions with little children are a bit different than with adults or big kids. Posing the children is quite a challenge. But me as a photographer, I take my time and let them play as much as possible, try to concentrate on the parents if possible, or individual portraits. Look at the first image, it shows the family when I tried to pose them, the kids just wanted to play, and Sarah was wondering how to keep them all together.
As a photographer I need to be very patient. This is no problem for me as I love little kids. While they are playing, I just take individual pictures or couple-pictures of the parents. And when they all come together again, we just try out what works best for the family. It always works for me to create these wonderful family-memories.
The families are happy when they finally see their images.
And when I receive feedback like the following, I am so happy, too.
Sarah: "Karina was wonderful to work with. She was very patient with our 3 small children and very professional. Turn around time to see the pictures was extremely fast. Definitely recommend her to those looking to get their photos done."
