Clark County Kids Portraits

26 Sep

Every year it is ha been a tradition to take my kids to a park on Clark County to take their yearly portraits for their birthday. This year was no different, and while there are many beautiful places to take kids portraits in Clark County, I almost always end up at the same park with this little one.

There used to be a great wooden fence here that we included in our photographs and helped show a progression of her growth as well. Unfortunately it seems to have fallen down over the last year so we had to improvise a bit. I actually really liked the natural arches of these bushes and the brighter light that hit her from behind.

I spent a little time getting her to give me a more natural smile and love this grouping of that process:

We also tried out a few other spots to photograph her. There are some tall grasses that light up from behind at sunset.

Every year these portrait sessions take a different form and it is fun to see if they are more like a lifestyle photography session or a mini portrait session. It is also fun to see how her personality comes out each year. I always take each session as a bit of a quest to get genuine personality.


He is 7, already!?

16 Nov

Well last week I shared my daughter’s 4 year photos and talked about how amazing it is that she is not a toddler in any way anymore. Well even more amazing to me is that my son is now seven. Wow, in so many ways I feel like he is still just my baby, but he really is a full fledged big kid now. He totally had his own opinion about getting his photo taken for his seven year photos, which by the way was that he in no way wanted to participate in it.

He ended up giving me about 10 minutes and said I could take 20 photos total. Um, okay. He some how could even really tell when I was taking the actual photo even with all of the sound turned off and me using my zoom lens so I was standing quite a distance from him. It was funny in retrospect anyway.

Here are the results of my ten minute photo shoot with him. 🙂
