In my mind, this photoshoot was going to be a breeze with all the fall leaves, sunset lighting, coordinating outfits and a brand new lens! I just knew my girls would follow my directions because they are used to their mom snapping photos of them. We got to the location and right away I got this one priceless shot of them together looking like perfect angels...
I should've known that that behavior was going to be short lived. The rest of the time was pure chaos. Chasing Lola wore me out. My bribes no longer worked to get them to sit still! I was frustrated.
However, because of that evening, I've learned my lesson to let go of expecting perfect poses, because capturing the fun of childhood is just as beautiful, if not more so.
And in fact, the results were just perfect!
