Natural Outdoor Children’s Pictures

My favorite way to take children’s pictures is in a natural, outdoor setting. Not only is the light from the sun beautiful on their skin, but the kids can run around and be themselves.

Their mom and I talked before their session and we decided to include some of the boys’ favorite planes in the photos. I’m so glad we did because I really enjoy sequences like this, where you feel like you can jump right into the scene and join in their play.

This was a complete giggle-fest! Love their smiles.
