Houston Child Photographer – Shelby
Meet Shelby! She’s three years old, loves twirling and possesses the perfect combination of stubborn sweetness and sassy humor. Strong-willed children have a special place in my heart. My goal, as a mother of two little sassy-pants of my own, is to raise them to stubbornly stick to the values instilled in their tiny hearts by their father and me. It is for this reason that I adored working with this gorgeous little thing. I still giggle when I think back on this session. I sat her down and asked her playfully, “are you ready to take some pretty pictures?” Her reply you may ask? A firm “no.” Can you say three going on sixteen?!
Shelby was a super great sport throughout the entire session. She was very well behaved and continued playing along as I moved her around and kept adjusting her adorable flower crown. When it comes to child portrait sessions, my goal is to capture not only the beauty in a fine art portrait but to truly capture the essence of the child’s personality. I loved how these pictures came out. We started with a few close up shots of Shelby. You can see her strong spirit in the slight smirks and serious stares, but we also get to witness her bright, bubbly side while watching her twirl between attacks of giggles and grins.
Shelby’s mom is takes great care in documenting all of her children’s journey through childhood. She documents each of her children throughout their first year and then at each birthday after. Opportunities such as these make me so appreciative of the gift each of my clients give me by allowing me to capture such fun times in their little one’s lives. Thank you so much for this honor. I promise I will treat your session with the respect and professionalism it deserves.
