I can tell that it’s that time of the year again. Spring is here and photo-season is upon us. This time of the year we get busy with portrait bookings. It’s still been a little cool outside and I haven’t ventured out of the studio in a few months. Last week I had a baby session and my favorite little assistant helped me get the studio ready. Kayleigh, my 7 year old, loves to help me in the studio. Especially when there are babies around or if I need someone to hold a reflector. She’s a pretty good helper. Well, last week
while we were getting the studio lights and backdrops set up she wanted to help make sure the props were going to work. She wanted to try on my new feather wings. After she got my permission she ran downstairs to her room and changed into something more “angel-like”. When she came back up to the studio she was wearing her Cinderella Wedding Gown and the angel wings. She sat down on my new flokati rug and posed for me as we set the lights.
I’m so happy that she likes to come up and work with me in the studio. As a result she often has ideas for upcoming sessions and she’s almost always willing to pose for whatever ideas I come up with. I look forward to teaching her more about photography as she gets older and having her assist me with sessions in and out of the studio. I hope she never grows out of wanting to do this with me.
