Sisters Holiday Portraits

A client wanted some good photos of their daughters for the holiday season and to use on cards.  We headed downtown St. Petersburg to the Museum of Fine Arts and a stroll along the waterfront.

Still a little early in the day, we had to seek what shade we could.

The pair breaks apart and I get to shoot some individuals.

When in doubt, ham it up.

Once the shade settled in we were able to roam out in front of the museum.

I kept trying to get a lower angle of the girls to get the top of the museum and the sky in the frame.  They kept crouching lower and lower to match the height of my lens.  Before we knew it we had raced straight to the pavement where I was able to make the image displayed above.  When they behave, kids are awesome to work with.

One of my personal favorites.

Caught the last few minutes of sunlight on the banyan trees.

No kid is going to argue if you ask them to throw stuff in the air.

A little tough getting them to throw at the exact same time but it works.

Separate from the big banyans, the other side of the museum is anchored by this behemoth.  I was hesitant to even try with the harsh spotty light but I finally found a composition I liked.

Studio on the spot.

Kids climbing trees.

And one outfit change close things out.
