Portrait Session – Olivia & Ethan

After my session with Madison, I headed up to visit my cousin Jennifer and her kids, Olivia and Ethan. When I am in town, I like to make the most of it! We had a great time and spent a lot of it playing, rolling around on the ground, and having a great time in the fall leaves. Olivia didn’t warm up to the camera at first, but after a little while I think she might have even enjoyed it a bit.

Sometimes to get kids to warm up and relax and forget about the camera, I suggest we just run and play for a little while. I’ll shoot with a medium telephoto lens and just let kids do their thing. Sometimes I get the best pictures that way:

LOVE LOVE LOVE this one. Ethan is just too cute. You’ll be seeing more of this picture in my new marketing materials as well.

The whole family, Olivia, Earl, Jennifer and Ethan. This is the closest we got to having everyone sit still and looking at the camera 🙂

We did a lot of playing on the slide in the backyard

After we were all finished, Olivia insisted I take pictures of many of her toys, including this dinosaur. This one cracked me up – I love her expression!
