After almost a month of being sick, I was finally able to get out and shoot again. There are a few reasons I am happy to share this session with everyone. First off, she is just gorgeous. This 11 year old is right at that age where she is starting to leave childhood behind. I’m thrilled that I got to capture her in this time. Secondly, this goes perfectly with my current FaceBook contest for a free snow session. Most people want outdoor portrait sessions done in the summer and fall around here, but don’t discount winter in Chicago. Turning the landscape into muted tones can create for beautiful portraits. Sessions are just quicker. And snow can make for great family lifestyle sessions with everyone playing in the snow.
But back to Miss Annie here. Isn’t she a heartbreaker?
Now, while she looks all glamorous, Annie is just a normal kid who froze for a few minutes but never complained.
She doesn’t smile with her teeth and would cover up her mouth when she laughed. When I showed her this one, she hated it because she is so self-conscious about her smile. I told her to trust me, her mom would love it.
