It is very rare when I get to actually take photographs of my own daughter. I am usually so busy with sessions and editing all of my clients sessions that I miss out of capturing some fun moments of my daughter. I have been wanting , and plotting a rain session of my daughter for the longest time. And either there was lighting, it was getting too dark, or I was too exhausted during the week to do it.
Well this past weekend we got a beautiful overcast, sprinkles and LOTS of puddles! We had planned to visit our friends for a early dinner, and since our friends daughter is one of my daughter's best friends, I went with the more the merrier!
We had so much fun!! This right here is a perfect example of why I say "stop the posing, and lets play" . Sure, a nicely posed photo of a child is pretty, but when you capture their JOY , it makes for a BEAUTIFUL portrait! Photos like this make me get butterflies in my stomach because I can actually feel and relive that moment and fun time that my child is always going to talk about .
This definitely won't be the last splashing session in our book! We plan to get splashing again very soon! Of course, after we enjoy a few beautiful sunny days and glorious sunsets!
