I just love it when I am able to drag in an extra set of hands and get in front of the camera for one of my fun themed sessions. This time I was so blessed to have my mom, she is such a great sport! I have been planning to do some fun paint sessions for my Spring/ Summer special. However, I never can get my family to cooperate, or find a shutter clicker. This time it worked out!
Working with kids, especially your own can be difficult. There were a few bumpy moments getting started, but eventually we were able to get started.
It was so much fun, really really fun. I was certain my sweet, sweet husband would not enjoy it at all, and as always I anticipated a melt down from at least one child, and not being the one taking the pictures makes me a little anxious. However after giving my mom a quick tutorial on camera usage, setting all the camera settings, and some general direction we were off and running.
I made the paint mixture with washable tempra paint mixed 50/50 with water, added some sponge brushes and let the games begin. The brushes were great they held a lot of paint and made a great splatter when slung at each other. Also they were the perfect size for little hands.
The kiddos were itching to get started and I didn't even have the last paint open, before my littles were slinging paint on me. The giggles, laughter, and one small bought of tears. were music to this mommas ears. I so love it when we an all have fun together. Even Daddy cracked a grin and laughed out loud.
These pictures are not a typical posed family session, they are more an action packed journey from solid white clothes to paint splattered colorful goodness.
Lots of grins, and lots of fun, contact me to schedule your paint fight session today!
