Children Photo Session

We shot quite  a bit of variety today……. classic portraits, fun candids, outdoor natural light, indoor window light with wide apertures, and off camera flash. They all give different looks, and I like them all. It’s nice to have variety. A lot of photographers ask what kind of flash gear we use so I’ll mention that we used a Profoto AcuteB 600R portable pack and head with a 2X3′ Profoto soft box for the off camera flash shots. All the children were adorable.  We found the right light outdoors, with the right background,  and set the children up, and guided them a little bit.  Of course, children at this age have a mind of their own and a short attention span, so we try to make sure they are having fun and keep it moving quickly. They are pretty much moving targets and we have to be ready to catch a shot at all times. Family and children photographer Mark Lovett in Gaithersburg, MD

Can you tell in which of the above shots we used natural outdoors light, indoors window light, and off camera flash? It’s three totally unique looks, and all very beautiful I think. Family and children photographer Mark Lovett in Gaithersburg, MD

Family and children photographer Mark Lovett in Gaithersburg, MD This was getting pretty close to mid-day sun, so the lighting outside was challenging! Family and children photographer Mark Lovett in Gaithersburg, MD Oh yes, the bubble machine worked wonders!
