Styled Child Photoshoot in Orangevale CA
Last year, I took vintage styled photos of Paige and Grayson for their child portraits. I've taken photos of them since this shoot and I have no idea how I could have forgotten to blog about it. The images I captured from this session are still some of my favorite photographs.
Paige is quite the character. She was 3 at the time of this session and this added to her flair. She absolutely loved my props, especially my old-fashioned corded phone.
We met at Orangevale Park CA. I like the trails there, as well as the small bridge that goes over the (dried up) creek. This park also has a big soccer field, a playground, and a fenced-in area for horses; in fact, we saw a couple of people riding horses during our shoot.
Their mom always has the best outfits for them. Grayson wore a hat with a matching suit and Paige wore the cutest little dress with pearls. As with all of my child photography sessions, I didn't pose them as much as I gave them suggestions.
Honestly though, the phone did all of the work for me. Being children of the 21st Century, they have never seen a corded phone before. Once I explained what it was, Paige knew what to do.
We went to the bridge for a few shots before we lost too much light. Grayson presented his personality more here - quiet and reflective, as well as silly.
I am sure you will see more of these two as I have more model calls. Styled Child Photography sessions are really fun, especially if you have children who aren't shy in front of the camera.
