the perfect subject

This recent family had a fabulous session because they are not only a beautiful family, but they seemed so happy to be there and to be together.  It was a joy to take their pictures!  Usually, I have to throw away the first 10 pictures, or so, because the people feel so stiff.  But, you can see here that Brad and Johnna and their son look great!  The Disney song comes to mind - "Can you feel the love tonight?"

To some degree, a photo session is only as good as the subjects.  If they don't want to be there, I can only do so much.  The challenge of engaging a grumpy teen or father, or frazzled mother is actually fun.  But, it can be frustrating when I want perfect results from every session.  I had one session that was multi-family and the poor little boy who had just turned three hadn't had a nap yet.  And our appointment started at 3:30 in the afternoon.  It was not a happy session for him.  Or his parents, I am afraid.  But, he is such a doll and I got some great pouting pictures.  I still feel bad for him, though....

I think it is sessions like this past one where the fun and the love in this family are palpable, that make up for the challenging sessions - and I could tell you some interesting stories...

I adore my clients and always look forward to new sessions.  This recent family was just in such a great mood that day, and seem to be every time I see them that it was like eating dessert first.  And the dessert is cheesecake!  I can't wait until the next time they want to update their photos! Hmm, how about next week?
