It’s just the best thing when I get to watch a family like this one as they grow. At our first session, it was only the two older boys, and then I got to see Charlie as a newborn… he’s so big now!!!!
Emma had two fantastic ideas and I was so happy to try something a little more candid! I’ve been tweaking my style (both editing and shooting) and one of my favourite new things is focusing the in-between moments and interactions. Bonus, this relieves a huge amount of stress when working with little ones. Just play! These boys did a great job of that, for sure. 😉
Generally I’m not a prop-person, mostly because I don’t want images to look forced or unnatural. But I’m pretty sure these boys with watermelon in their hands is as natural as it gets. Loved this, Emma’s other great idea. Mama knows her boys!
The black and whites below are some of my faves. Kids being adorable is one thing, but the loving parent watching and enjoying them is something incredibly special too.
Happy end-of-summer, Buist Family! Had such fun with you. 🙂 🙂 🙂
