An Independence High School senior requested to 'shadow' me on a portrait session for a school project. I was more than happy to give her a couple hours from my day. I asked my neighbor if we could borrow her lovely daughter Alex. I've secretly wanted to photograph Alex for a long time, she's so precious. I haven't been photographing as many children this past year as when I first started my business in 2007, and I really do miss working with them. They are challenging, fun, and unpredictable, not to mention that fact that most parents don't even realize how longs it's been since they've had a real portrait made of their school age child. Most of us end up looking back only to find their school head shots and a few vacation snap shots of those precious years that flew by. Where does the time go?
Alex reminded me of how fun and satisfying it is to capture a child in those special years that are gone before you know it. I highly recommend having your child professionally photographed at least once between the age of 6-12. Believe me it's not something you'll ever regret, make the time to prioritize a session for your child. Professional portrait sessions and their results can really boost a child's self esteem, and give you cherished portraits to enjoy for generations.
"I love them! I am so excited. You were absolutely wonderful - I'd be happy to post a review for you if you'd like - just let me know where! Thank you so much."
