Schroeder family Holiday Mini Shoot
You (and I) never know what is going to happen at mini shoot. I have done enough of them that I control what I can and set myself up for success as best I can. BUT… then… in crawls, walks, jumps, runs… the kids. At that point we are at their mercy and I am replying on the parents to set me up for a good session. Did they nap well? Did they eat recently? Did they eat enough? To much? Have they gone to the bathroom? Are they uncomfortable in their new clothes? Did you recently pick at something on their face? All of that will make a difference in their mood and that makes a difference to my images. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy to photograph an unhappy child as well, but… happy ones seem to make you happier, and that is good for all.I have been photographing this crew for years and each time there is something new. There was the weird smile phase, the wiggly phase, the non-listening phase, the snot phase, the silly phase AND many more in between. All have been fun for me. Thank you Schroeder family for letting me capture your family year after year. I can not wait to see the next phase.
