This sweet family was so much fun! We met on a local, Bainbridge beach and luckily avoided any rain! Having two girls myself, I love photographing the bond between sisters. The youngest one was a little wary of me at first. Now let me say, it is quite common for kiddos to be wary of me at first. When my oldest was a younger kiddo, I don’t think she EVER smiled at a stranger. Some people got quite offended! I say this because -parents, if you have a shy kiddo, I will not be offended if they are wary of me.
With shy children, I think part of the reason they react with shyness to new situations because they are not sure what is going to be asked of them. What are the expectations of this “photography session thing”? Kiddos usually generally warm up when they realize I am asking very little of them. My number one goal is to make the session fun for your kid. I hope you’ll come back and get photos again and I know it is easier to schedule if your kiddos remember the experience as positive.
Needless to say, I am very excited to meet your kiddo, whether they be shy, hyper, happy, wild, quiet or even worried. I will do my best to play and make it fun!
