Adorable Sisters Session in Colorado Springs, Colorado

This session will always be special for me, and so will this family. This is the first family session I booked in Colorado Springs and I am so grateful it was with the Breedens. I have photographed them a couple of times since then, and this family is always a joy to work with. They are not just adorable together, but they are always loving and kind to each other.

The Art of Photographing Children

If there is anything I learned in all these years working with children, as a teacher and a photographer, it is that kids don’t like sitting still and following orders. They don’t. Children in general do not enjoy being told what to do… and if you really think about it, neither do adults. 

An ideal session for me is one where they kids are just allowed to be kids. I like to encourage them to joke with their parents and siblings, I like when they take turns directing the session, I like when they come up with weird shot ideas, and I absolutely love that when you listen to children, they listen to you.

Fun Family Photography in Red Rock Canyon, Colorado Springs

I met up with them on a chilly December afternoon at Red Rock Canyon Open Space and though it was a bit cold, that didn’t stop these fun kids from running around and being as silly as possible. It was the great energy and attitude of this family that made this shoot such a success. It was easy to tell that they really enjoy spending time together. It also helped that they were prepared for the weather! Dawn brought a beautiful wagon with snacks and a blanket! Talk about being prepared! Great job mom!
