Seattle Family Photography | Itsy Bitsy Spider
No matter how many photography classes or posing classes you take – there is nothing in the world that will prepare you for a toddler. Nothing. During this photography session I sang. It was a total first for me. I am accustom to making random noises; but not singing. In retrospect probably should have apologized to the parents after – normally the only thing that has to endure my lack of carrying a tune is my 4 car doors. On this day however – I sang “Itsy Bitsy Spider”.
What is almost painfully funny – when I do have the chance to photograph a person that will listen to my directions and stand still (I freeze) – its too easy. There is a special kind of joy and feeling of triumph I get from turning a fussy toddler into a happy one. Sometimes it means singing songs, squawking like a bird – or just plain and simple patience. Not a single photography class I took taught these traits.
This stunning family is a family I have had the honor of working with before. I took pictures of this beautiful and smart little girl as a newborn and seeing her now walking and learning Italian is just a blessing! She loves birds, dogs and her stuffed animals and most of all hugs from Mom and Dad! What an absolute joy working with this amazing family.
