I am absolutely in love with this Little Women session. This gorgeous princess just turned 15 and mom wanted to give her a special gift. I have to admit that it is often the case that kiddos this age may not be super comfortable posing or smiling for pictures. My daughter is just a couple of years older than this beautiful girl and when I started photographing her, it was clear I needed to make her feel very comfortable. I did not want to be asking for smiles and laughs if it was not how she wanted to be photographed. Sometimes teenagers do not smile much for pictures. And this is perfectly fine. So when this young lady came to the studio we had the same chat. I told her that she did not have to smile for the pictures (well, maybe in just a couple, as I am sure mom would really love to see those) but you have to let kiddos be themselves. They are absolutely beautiful regardless… and she was.
Happy Birthday princess… you are stunning. I hope you like these images. I know mom will love them!
