Wesley Chapel and Tampa’s Child Photographer – Twin First Birthday Portraits
Today I photographed twin sisters for their First Birthday. While thinking about this session with the mom, we were originally going to do their smash cake part of the session on the white background. Then I woke up in the middle of the night last week with this idea that kept me awake! I am serious … that is what happens to me when I have an idea … I can’t go back to sleep until I write it down or email it to myself. I blamed the middle of the night inspiration on the sushi I had for dinner Hey … whatever works!!
The next morning I called the mom and told her my idea. It was to take the girls outside in a tall grassy field with a table/chairs, balloons, flowers and their smash cake. Do their smash cakes like a little outdoor tea party.
The problem was the sun … the time of the session wouldn’t be the best sunlight. So I bought some material in the colors of their session (pink and green) to help block some of the back lighting caused by the high sun. The effect worked out great. Not only did the panels of material block some of the sun, but they added a very whimsical feel to the photographs!
Being a holiday weekend, my husband would have killed me had I stayed at the studio to completely edit the session, but I just couldn’t help but get one out of the session to post online!
I promise to post more sneak peeks next week!!
Have a Happy Labor Day everyone. I hope you get to spend a lot of fun time with your family.
