Most often, we photograph our children in their Halloween costumes as a quick afterthought as we are dashing out the door. This year, tell a story!
As you and your kiddos are planning what they will wear, think about a story you can tell. Your photo story doesn’t have to be well directed or the environment staged. It doesn’t even need to be on Halloween night.
Here is one we did with a cell phone, on the fly as the kids were simply playing in their costumes.
“When Super Heroes …”
What story will you tell this year? Show me. I’d love to see!
This message made me laugh. A “Kid Whisperer.” Hahaha!
Here’s what Sondra sent to me:
I have followed your work for years. Though I haven’t had the pleasure of being photographed by you… yet; I hope to next year.
I realized looking at some of your kid and family photos and reading what your clients have said about their sessions, you must be a “kid-whisperer!” How you can get kids to do what you ask and end up with such fantastic photos is amazing.
Please continue to share your entertaining and beautiful work with us. I just wanted you to know that you are a true artist.
As most of you know, I simply love being with kids. I hold my early mom-years as a special blessing and still love being a mom to our adult children and, of course, now our grandchildren.
I think there really is something about that intuitive connection with kids. Just never heard it as being the “Kid Whisperer.”
If you have been thinking about creating Family Portraits, and are not sure how your kiddos will behave, now is the time!
Call me … “The Kid Whisperer.”
