This is one of those sessions that truly catches our eye here at IMB when it comes in. Maybe it’s the big blue eyes, maybe it’s the stunning black dress. Whatever it is, this is a really gorgeous session from Amy Angelo Photography. Very cool that she gets to photograph this adorable girl every year!
I’ve photographed Eisley every year since she was 15 days old. This being her 3rd year we wanted to do something a bit more special. She, of course, loves princesses right now and dressing up. Her mother had this beautiful dress made for our Tea Party photoshoot and Eisley was extremely excited for the shoot and to wear the dress. I was able to locate this fantastic location with beautiful natural lighting and fortunately it was overcast for the afternoon photo session.
Unfortunately, (which luckily you can not tell by these shots I captured from the session) the excitement of the day and dressing up over excited her and she had a complete melt down the whole session. With the phrase, “It’s all my fault” (which apparently is from a Princess in a Disney movie) and “I just can’t do this”. So to say the least, the session was extremely challenging. But I stuck with it and was very patient with her and pulled out all my tricks to make her feel comfortable and happy. And I am so thankful that I did because I love the images of her from this session. Every year I photograph her she gets lovelier. Can’t wait for next year. Tips – patience is key with toddlers
