This past weekend we went away to my sister's lakehouse.... picturesque lawn and lake.... I had ideas.
If you haven't noticed yet, I always have the ideal images in mind when starting a shoot with children, rarely does it ever go as planned. Maybe 1% of the time the image I wanted actually happens, that is why I practice patience and go with the flow while photographing children.
Now we also know, while photographing my children.... it pretty much NEVER goes the way I intend it to. I love every photograph of my children so I can't be too hard on myself ;)
My family always says sure to my ideas, and never let me have my way. I should know by now that is the way it's going to happen, so I go with the flow. LOL.
The only subject willing to pose for me was my almost 6 month old niece Camilla. I wanted to change her outfit and blankets, but when a baby is in that good of a mood.... you start taking photos. The rest of the images are of my daughters, my 3 year old and 6 year old nephews as well as my parents. I went a more candid/photojournalistic route with the rest. I absolutely love the pictures of my parents and my girls. The ones of my Dad and Viola crack me up.
We had a lovely time and I plan on going back to their lakehouse this summer to attempt the images I had in mind.
