Christmas Eve while Phill as preparing his famous lasagna for dinner, I took McKenzie outside for a mini shoot. This was not planned and more or less just for fun. She is a spirited child and enjoys exploring the outdoors, running around, and playing in the dirt. With preschoolers, it is much harder to do any type of posed photography. Instead, I often let them lead and let me enter inter their world of play-I find real magic happens here anyways.
I love the side lean pose-though this was completely natural.
She informed me she was digging for bones.
McKenzie likes to call herself Boots and her grandmother Dora.
I love that she reached out and grabbed her toes here. I don't think a child always has to look at the camera for you to get a great shot. There are many in this impromptu shoot that demonstrate this well.
Thanks Sweet Girl!
