We are so lucky to have clients like these. Even though they have a 2 year old that just keeps moving they are on top of everything. They live a bit farther from our studio so we planned to meet about half way for this birthday club session. Mom was looking for some fall color and sadly the park she wanted wasn’t allowing photographers the day of the session. However, she found one lone colorful tree at another park. It actually turned out perfectly because there was plenty of room to roam. This little guy is 2 and he just keeps moving! We needed the room to run, entertain and chase him during the session. Mom and dad thought we were not going to get any photos. They were surprised by the number of great images we were able to get during the session. We often have to let people know that it can be frustrating when your 2 year old is not listening, but we want them to have fun. There is a group of people that think indoor photos are better because the kids are contained. However, that means they must stay in the exact area of the studio lighting. Placing a 2  year old back in the same spot over and over can get frustrating for them. When we can go outside for a birthday club session we love it. We can let them roam a bit more and that helps them have more fun with us. We would like for each session with our studio to be fun for the kids. They should enjoy seeing us and want to “play” while we take photos. This way they trust us and truly act themselves, giving us the opportunity to capture the perfect smile. Now this little guy was giving us a few smiles while we played together but the big belly laughs didn’t come until mom got out his favorite video. We think she timed it perfectly, because if you give the video too soon then they don’t want to do anything else. They have so many wonderful fall images that they will cherish forever. We are very excited for the next session!   #ravettaphotography #stlphotographer #birthdayclub #fallphotos #outdoorsession #familyphotos #thisistwo #havingfun #onthemove
