Last weekend I met the sweetest pair of sisters ~ Meet Tilley age 6 & Hallie age 8, they were so easy in front of the camera, such naturals.
Children, like anybody, look their best when photographed outdoors in natural light. Soft, natural light gives their faces a more natural and pleasing shape, makes the skin appear softer and removes ugly harsh shadows.
All children have a short attention span and most of them will simply be unable to sit still for very long or follow complicated posing instructions. The environment of an indoor portrait studio can often be intimidating for any child. So a fun outdoor setting such as a woodland or forest like the one we visited with the girls can instantly help put a child at ease.
