This is by far one of my favorite children’s portrait sessions. Rachel of Darly Bird and I were reacquainted last fall when she and her mother opened a new shop in Provo called, Harmony (see some of my photographs of their shop HERE) featuring her collection from Darly Bird and her mom’s amazing curation of materials, wools, yarns and the like.
I was pretty excited to work with her in getting some genuine portraits of her three. I love all of the color and the amazing personality in the girl’s outfits. Rachel let me do my thing, trusted me and let her girls dance, laugh, show off, sit still and quiet and be themselves. The girls were so fun to get to know and I’m very happy with the results.
Also, I love photographing children. There is something unmatched in the level of emotional and intellectual transparency I am able to share with my client when that client is a child. I don’t care what I look like, how competent I appear, what impressive joke I can tell. I feel totally at ease and completely in tune with these little people and I love it.
