One fine afternoon I met a little girl named Francheska.

She’s turning one soon! Her parents wanted something to remember this important milestone by. A Beauty And The Beast themed pre-birthday session were in order. First Of April took care of the set while I had to find a way to make this little girl happy.

She smiled when her mom and dad were in the frame. She was happier! It was my cue to ask them to jump in. I had to let go of more solo shots.

When it comes to photographing kids, they dictate how the shoot will run. I can’t force them to look this way or that. I think it’s weird to ask them to pose too. They like freedom and movement. The best way to capture their little self is to let them be.
