I photographed this Mama+Me Photography Session for Chelsea and Willow in-studio. When they arrived, Willow honestly wanted nothing to do with photos. She had a boo-boo on her foot and instead wanted to play with makeup and explore the space. Pretty normal for a two year old! I worked with her and her mama on prompted distractions and directions, while always being ready with my camera. Willow is definitely an explorer and loves to run, so letting her do her thing while “tricking” her into poses was key. My favorites were Chelsea and Willow sitting by the window, talking about Princess Elsa outside and seeing if she could see the “monkey that was running around outside.” The key is always patience and being able to work with them.
