I love BIG kids

So there is this big misconception that “big” kids are terrible for photo sessions. Too miserable, won’t smile, etc. But I love them. Partly because they are pretty good listeners and partly because I think that I make them laugh. And whether they are laughing with me or at me…either way, I’m okay with it. When my friend and colleague asked me to shoot her family this fall, and then I found out that her oldest was my oldest’s favorite camp counselor, and then we had the most amazing evening….well, I loved this session. It really might be one of my favorites ever. We simply walked the grounds - laughing, talking, taking breaks and getting to know each other. I hope that more families of “big kids” see the value in this. Because like I said in my FB post….always hold your babies.
