Jacksonville Child Photographer- Kingsley Plantation
This child session took place at the Kingsley Plantation in Jacksonville, Florida. Her mother described her as “half-princess meets Tomboy.” She loves being outside. I love hearing parent’s talk about their children. I just knew as mom talked about these photos and her daughter how much she adored her. She said, “Her smile tells you what she’s thinking. And if it’s a real smile – it’s the most beautiful and amazing smile ever.” It’s my goal to get genuine smiles and laughs from anyone I photograph.
This session was sunny, bright and full of life just like this girl. Isn’t she beautiful? She looks like a porcelain doll. All these smiles were captured because of her mom. Kids smile the best for their own parents.
Another trick I learned from this family was to have multiple options for the child to change into. These were taken in the fall. The weather is not consistent. It can be warm or cold. Her mom was extremely prepared and had multiple dresses that would work depending if it was hot or cool. This evening was a little cooler so this gorgeous red velvet dress was chosen to wear. It worked out perfectly because these photos were used for Christmas cards. The multiple dresses also allowed the girl to make her own choice in what to wear. I learn so many great tips from those I photograph.
Anytime water is involved I always give the option to get in the water. I loved her mischievous grin. She did wade in the water a little. We laughed, jumped, twirled and ran around, we had a great time. Get ready to see her amazing smile. She and her mother were such a delight to be around and I am honored to have photographed this little girl.
