Playing with Children during portrait sessions

Playing with Children is one of the best parts of my job as a professional photographer. During my portrait sessions I invite the children to be themselves and to have fun! When children are enjoying themselves during my sessions I will undoubtedly end up with more authentic photographs. Here is an example of a recent portrait session I did with three lovely children here in Santa Fe. They were a bit shy when we started out, but once we started playing they really blossomed in front of the lens. I am so excited for their families to have these photographs.
