Abbey, Tyler & Lex

I am a little late on this one, but 2 weeks ago I had the pleasure of doing a session with Abbey, Tyler and their adorable little guy, Lex! Abbey is a good friend of mine, as well as my hair stylist. Recently when I was getting my hair done she asked if I would do their photos. She explained that she was having a problem capturing a good photo of the 3 of them because Lex is at that age where he is very active. I was of course very excited about it, as this gives me more practice and she was the first person to ask me to do their photos and was actually serious about it, ha ha! Now Lex was the first child of his age, under 2, that I have photographed. I must admit it was a little challenging getting him to look at the camera. I don’t have any kids so I am not the best at entertaining them or getting their attention. I sure did learn a few lessons that day. I will be taking bubbles on my future shoots with young children, and I will also be investing in a few camera buddies, as they call them. I kind of followed them around and tried to let Lex do his own thing. Like I said, I was a little nervous and unsure of how to work with a child his age, but I think it turned out well. I was just so honored to be asked to do their photos for their Christmas cards! Here’s a look at some shots from the session.
