Flexibility and staying as creative as possible during a shoot is sometimes not only nice, refreshing, etc., but necessary. When working with two little dolls under the age of 3 it definitely keeps everyone pulling out all the stops! Being silly, singing songs, letting mom play photographer, and even letting big sister have a go at pressing the button -- whatever it takes. But in the end all I hope is that I can capture some moments that will be cherished and leave families with memories they can look back on with fondness and a smile.
Is everyone looking at the camera? No. Is it posed and perfect? No. But that's just fine because its perfectly imperfect.
Thank you to the Gikling family for this morning adventure in the desert. I hope that I was able to capture memories and smiles that you will love for years to come.
