The only time I have ever had success photographing solo my girls is when Oona was about 3 weeks old.... every other time I have needed Dad's help in wrangling Viola. She's at the lovely age of 2.5 and wants to do what she wants to do when she wants to do it.
After attempt #1 while we were on vacation failed, I decided to try again. I didn't have high expectations and tried not to have a vision dancing in my head before starting the shoot.
I dressed both girls at home before heading to the studio, both were fed and in good moods. I let Viola play around a bit while I set up my lighting and camera. I used Oona to test the light and asked Viola to come sit down and hold her sister. That lasted about a minute and Viola pushed Oona down onto her face while I was taking a picture.
After comforting Oona, we tried again...... and actually succeeded.
Here are the winners I used on our Holiday card..... of course I sent them all off and didn't save any for myself, so no card to show.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!
Thank you all for your support and patronage and I can't wait to see what 2016 brings to us all!
Here are some of my other favorite pics from our shoot.
