The Prior Family
After rescheduling for months due to bad weather, we finally got to hold our family session! This was my second session with this family, and these two boys are two crazy peas in a pod!
My best advice for sessions with children who don't have a lasting attention-span for a full photo session, is to play on their terms. All Abel & Braxtyn wanted to do was have a photo by the water. After our main series of photos, I promised we'd capture a few by the water as a reward for co-operation. While Mum & Dad had a few photos and so that we didn't have two young boys in the water - I suggested a boat race. Simply, you drop a leaf at the top of the stream, and the leaves are pushed along with the current. Whichever leaf reaches a set 'end point', wins!
Well we didn't even get as far as setting end-point, but we did get photos of the boys by the water as promised!
