I was extra excited the morning of the Kingsman family portrait session! Katie had asked me to choose a good location in Pensacola because she'd be going straight from our "first thing in the morning" session to work. This was perfect as there was a fantastic park I'd been just itching to do a shoot at that was only a few miles from her office!
The sun hadn't even burned off the clouds yet when Katie, her husband, and their little boy drove up.
As you can see, the Kingsman family included a 1 year old - a 1 year old little boy at that! Ok, no worries. I explained to mom and dad that we'd let him explore and as long as they kept smiling at me I'd get his attention and we'd have the shot! That's one of the things parent's forget sometimes. Mom and dad will be trying to get their little one to look at me, but then, when little one actually does look at the camera, mom and dad are looking at the little one.
Well, not only did mom, dad, and little man rock their session, Stella the dog was a rock star too! I only WISH my dogs were as chill and well behaved as she was!
