My last post reminded families that you don't have to load up the car and drive to a location to get a great family portrait. Sometimes the simplicity of the backyard is all that is necessary to bring out a child's playful side.
One of my recent photo shoots combined back yard photography with in home photography resulting in a series of photos I adore.
Winter is tough on toddlers. Some love the chilly New England temperatures but many do not. I enjoy coming in and having children show me their favorite spots, their favorite toys and their pets. They are relaxed and the pictures come naturally.
