Behind the scenes with Emma

Last week, one of our favorite toddlers came to Girton Images for a Christmas photo shoot. Whenever Emma wants to pose, Misty and I don’t question it. We just grab cameras, lenses, speedlites and start hitting the shutter. With this kind of subject, could you really blame us?

She knew it wasn't her present, but she tried to open it anyway.

Mom Becky is always so good about letting us shoot her. She’s very patient, not only with Emma, but with us as we change camera settings, figure out light ratios and the like. As you might imagine, keeping a toddler in good spirits can be challenging. Luckily for us, mom knows the right things to do and knows when Emma needs a moment to collect herself.

The shots posted here came from the outtakes but with Emma, even the outtakes turn out great. Coming soon, you’ll see the good ones. In the meantime, enjoy the gallery below.
