This is the second part for the Thiemens family after we photograph Little Riley. There are some usual portraits, and some fun-filled photos with the siblings taking a splash in their pool!
Well, my favorites are definitely the ones we had at the pool. It is much more memorable to me because you get to see the kids laughing and taking huge dips. To add on, their kids are really fun, friendly and warm up easily.
It takes a little time to warm up with kids even though there’s many articles that tell you how easy it is to get started. With different families, it works differently as well. Children we worked with range from age between 2 to 10 years of age, and it doesn’t get any easier with the grown ups. This has nothing to do with our understandings and lingo; more naturally it is your child’s personality, their daily activities and the environment you gave them.
As kids photographer, our observations are important because we need to wait for the kids to be ready. It is about setting a comfortable stage for them to work with us and different kids take situations differently as well. To make a session work well, we got to be bigger kids, lead them into the fun and make them smile.
This is also why it is rewarding to be a kids photographer!
