Wesley Chapel and Tampa’s Premier Child Photographer
Many clients come to me to photograph their kids, because, well lets face it, it is hard to photograph your own children! I thought it would be fun to create one of our Behind The Scenes Videos from a session of me photographing Eryn (my daughter). At 3 years old, it is no easy task to follow this little bundle of energy around a studio, let alone down in Ybor City. However, since I have done this for many of my clients, I was now jealous of the images I have created for them and wanted them for myself! I know it sounds silly, but it is true. When I take off my photography studio owner hat, I am just a mom. A mom who wants the best portraits of my daughter not with just her “cheesy” smile but with all the expressions she makes that I have grown to love. I even found myself saying “Eryn that isn’t your real smile.” The one thing I criticize my own clients for saying! HAHA Actually I am probably harder on myself and Eryn than I am on anyone else, because I KNOW the possibilities of what a perfect session feels like and I just want that for me too.
So I invite you to watch this video and join me in the adventure of what it takes for me to photograph my own daughter. I did manage to keep my cool most of the time, (clever editing on the video! haha)
Oh and if you are coming her from Facebook to see who won the Valentine’s Day Random drawing …
The winner is Kate Robinson. You won a Starbucks Gift Card I will stick it in with your Valentine’s Day Order
Here is my favorite image from Eryn’s Session. I have this hanging in a gallery wrap canvas at home!
