I always encourage my clients to include props in some of the portraits – things that are important or of significance to their kids or family, or sometimes just fun things that bring a smile to our faces. For this Portrait Session, my client brought these big, colorful lollipops and asked if we can include them, and of course I loved the idea! We saved them for the end of the session as a special surprise for the kids. That way we didn’t have to worry about lollipop-soaked lips or clothes in all the pictures.

And what a great time they had licking them away! 🙂 It really brought this fun, childhood element to the photographs that we all want to remember of our kids. They are the most adorable shots. It was so easy to make a collage of these photographs and the ones the clients chose to put up on their wall.
