"Studio" Portrait Session with Supercute Kids

My second shooter for weddings, Leisha and I  decided we wanted to put together a little "studio" shoot.  The brilliant thing about professional lighting and backdrops is that you can put them up anywhere and it looks like you're in a a so-called studio.  Leisha has two adorable kids and my friend, Soozee, has two precious twin girls (who also happen to be my Goddaughters).  So, we got them all together at Soozee's house and set up our lights and backdrop in Soozee's living room. It was quite the task trying to get three 2 year olds and one 4 year old to sit still for any length of time for photos, but we managed.  It was quite an  exausting experience, but I got these supercute portraits of them.

 

Kate was so easy.   She's an old pro at this with her mom always taking photos of her.  She's just a happy-go-lucky little person.

Landon, Kate's brother, on the other hand, was not so happy about pictures.   I think his mom may have taken a few too many photos of him in his 4 years. :)   I did get some awesome crying shots, though!

Look who's all happy now!  Landon loved trying to shoot the bats out of my camera with the water gun (not loaded, thankfully).

Ella wasn't too interested in having her portraits done.  She wanted to get to the other room to play with toys.  I was able to get some lovely quiet portraits of her.  She is sometimes quiet and comtemplative and sometimes so smiley and dancy.  This day, she was the former.

Ella does love to dance.  I love her bright outfit against the grey backdrop.

Georgia was fun, but hard to keep in one general area.  She loves to run around-a lot.

Georgia loves to dance when her favorite song comes on.

Here's Kate again because she was so easy to photograph and was happy to just stay in one place.

Everyone was getting tired and hungry and kids were no longer interested in photos, so this noseless bear was the only subject who would stay still and happy for me.

Lunch time!

Everyone was happy again after lunch.  Time for some more photos with less clothes.
