Felt Family Fall Portraits!



Hey everybody!

Other photographers are the easiest people to photograph! For the most part, they already know how to post, but most importantly, they respect your artistic process. They're also up for whatever goofball idea I happen to have. :)

When Kenny and I were planning his family session, he mentioned his sweet little daughter might need to warm up to me - that's not a new thing... pretty much 100 percent of kids need a little time to get used to the strange dude telling them what to do and pointing a camera at them.  But it took no time at all really, and she ended up being my best friend. We truly had a FUN time shooting!

Here are my faves!

(oh, and if you're a photographer who wants to get in on my photo tips about getting kids to warm up to you, shoot me a quick email: dalebenfield@gmail.com and say "add me to your list!")




I woke up in the middle of the night before the session and this image came to my brain - three little faces peeking out from a pile of leaves.  The family was all about entertaining my idea, and I just LOVE this image!
















Talk to you soon,
Dale
