Who doesn’t love a good birthday celebration? I know I sure do (especially if it involves friends, family and yummy cake!). But enough about me…let’s get back to this session. When you’re turning the big #3, there is a lot to celebrate! This 3rd birthday lifestyle photography session at my New Bedford studio was oh-so-much fun! As you can see below, Alivia was a little bashful at times, which is a pretty common feeling when you put a kid in front of a big black camera and ask them to smile for a stranger! However, making my clients (especially my smallest subjects) feel comfortable is something I take very serious. So, we made sure to take a lot of breaks and have fun with the balloons and fabric backdrops so that she felt at ease in front of the camera.
Taking breaks isn’t a bad thing either. Sure, it might lengthen the shoot a little, but it’s also a time to get to to know my clients a little better. I got quite the education during our breaks as Alivia brought along some of her beloved Troll dolls and told me all about their latest movie. It sounds pretty great, so I might have to talk my husband into a fun date night soon 🙂
This 3rd birthday lifestyle photography session was also dear to me because I’ve come to know Alivia’s mom, Lauren through some shared interests. She and I met a little over a year ago and share a love for both photography and Beachbody®. Lauren is a Beachbody® coach and a great inspiration to so many- including myself! I love following along on her journey and it’s cute to see Alivia pop into Lauren’s live broadcasts. I will say though- it was even more fun to meet Alivia in person, so I’m thrilled they stopped by for a this birthday lifestyle photo session.
