I have worked with the P family as their Lexington lifestyle photographer for a couple of years now and have gotten to really enjoy our visits. I love that we always set aside some time for each of their four children to have a little child-directed photo session. Their sessions, along with a few others, are what is inspiring the Unscripted chaos sessions. I love when each child has a moment to do what they love, at this age, in this moment, and be photographed. Kids love it because it’s fun! This time, I walked into their house and the little girl grabbed my hand and said “I want to show you my room!”. I ask them each about their favorite things, and to talk to me about what they like in their rooms. The resulting images are so authentic.
We started with the oldest child, a kid who loves to draw and is very good at it! Mom told me that he spends a lot of time at his desk. Sounded like a great place to start! I do mix in a few portraits of each child in their own environment as well. The thing about these portraits is the environment – their rooms – change as much as they do over the years. It’s a great thing to capture while you can!
The second child to be photographed, this little girl, has such a huge personality. It’s so much fun to be around her! I never know what she will be giggling about 🙂
Finally, we try to get a photo of all four together. Four kids 7 and under – that’s when the fun really starts! I think we did a pretty good job this year! Check out a few of my favorites….
