I have been taking pictures of Maddie for four years now, so it only made sense for me to take her grad pictures as well. It was a beautiful August Duluth day!
Isn't she just gorgeous? I can't wait to see where life takes her.
When your friend is a photographer, you get your school pictures taken by them. Presenting Maddie's school pictures 2019, taken in beautiful Duluthia :)
1. Opt Outside
Apart from the fact that natural lighting is best for taking high quality images (unless you use photography lights indoors), nature creates a nice back drop for images. Try to find spots with lots of surrounding greenery and you are good to go.
2. Go to A Spot That They Love
If they are comfortable in the environment they are in, they will more likely want to cooperate. After all, you want to capture them when they are happy and smiling rather than when they are grumpy. For example, playgrounds are a good place for photoshoots with your kiddos.
3. Catch them in their element
Don't force them to pose. They won't enjoy that and it doesn't really represent who they are anyway. They are kids, let them be little. As a result, you will capture many real moments of their childhood - what a treasure!

Sweet baby Marielle is turning ONE year old, which was the perfect opportunity for a mini shoot of her and her family.
