As a photographer, building a rapport is so important and this goes for the grown ups as well as the little ones. I love to ask silly and serious questions to see what comes out. Big laughs are often everyones favorite image but I also love to capture the thoughtful expression of concentration; the wheels turning. Getting folks to feel at ease, show true personality and the essence of who they really are is my goal in a portrait session.

Of course, it's super easy when it's your very own grandson and his personality just leaks right out of him!! I just wanted to share some of the pictures we did this past week. He is my joy!
