As our first real snow covered everything with a sheet of ice, rendering it a chore to leave, what else is there to do but have a cozy sleepover? Inspired by a Stacey Potter Photography, I decided to follow her lead and do a "two-minute mini" directed by my kiddos. With a sleepover underway, I seized the opportunity! (Okay, in respect of full disclosure - this was more like a 5 min. mini session.)
Here they talk about what they will be doing for their small shoot. Directors in discussion.
Oh great idea! Jump on the bed!
Are all little girls gymnasts? I can't tell if it is because I was climbing walls, mastering one handed cartwheels, and doing the splits for fun as a child. Do they take after me or is this just the way of life for energetic, happy girls?
Either way, I love it and welcome the enthusiasm - it is a natural happy enhancer. :)
After all the jumping what is a group of silly girls to do? Oh the ideas! Here again they discuss what they will do next. Wait for it.
What do all sweet little girls do after jumping on the bed?
Why, they play with adorable stuffed animals of course.
My one daughter, Abby, was done and left on her merry way. As I announced that the session was done and I had everything I needed they begged me to stay for one last thing...
Duh, a pillowfight. :)
That was my two (five) minute mini with the girls. I loved every second of it and as always, children are inspiring and authentic. Their smiles are genuine and they are so carefree, making them wonderful to photograph.
