My Marlton, New Jersey Studio was a perfect place to photograph this little girl’s First Communion Photo Session. I believe that these milestone sessions are very important and should not be rushed. Different backdrops and lighting techniques are used to give several “looks” to the images. Many times the image resembles a painted style. Children at this age are usually around 7 to 8 and patience is the key to a great photo. The kids really enjoy “playing model” and the last image taken is a pose that I let them create. Most times they let “off steam” and do something silly!
These parents were so wonderful with their sweet little boy. It was such a cold and windy day in Moorestown, New Jersey that the baby was shivering and just wanted to go back into the car. I suggested that they “play” with him instead of trying to make him look into the camera and the magic happened. He proceed to share his apples one at a time and paddle in the little canoe. It was so much fun to see him in motion! I love the interaction between parents and their children, moments not to be forgotten.
