These two gorgeous children have proven to be one of my favourite portrait sessions in that they have truly beautiful faces. Their eyes and smiles are just wonderful.
Unfortunately what made them slightly less than perfect was the little girl's aversion to sitting still. But I really can't complain because in the short time I had her attention I managed to get 4 images I absolutely love.
I love them so much I've decided its time to switch some of my samples in the studio. The hard part now for me is deciding which ones to choose. And the frame my client choose for one of her images has got me thinking I want that as a sample in the studio too.
I just love the portrait above. I wish I could have taken one like this of my daughter who often had a look similar to this. I have snaps of my daughter doing just this, once during her first dance show and another time on her first day of playgroup, but no proper portraits.
Of course I understand that in most cases parents want to see smiling faces. Still I can't help loving the serious one. She just looks so sweet. And the expression in the serious one is just as much a part of her as the happy one.
Now I am really looking forward to seeing these images framed as they'll look even better then.
