Meet 3-year-old Enrique, a shy and sensitive soul that LOVES scooby doo, is fascinated by airplanes and enjoys playing in the dirt. Originally, Enrique was signed up for our Sonoran Spring Mini-Session featuring our ducklings. However, we realized quickly that Enrique wasn’t quite ready to take on that challenge just yet. Instead, we used the remainder of the mini-session to help Enrique feel as comfortable as possible in order to capture the shots below. I first met Enrique and his mother, Adelina when Enrique was still a baby and I can’t believe what a handsome little man he’s growing into.
Enrique serves as the perfect reminder that sometimes, photo shoots can be scary. When working with particularly shy children, it can be slow moving because it takes time to develop a sense of trust. Although it may be nerve wracking for parents because we all want to see our children’s best smiles captured, it’s essential to respect the child and listen to when they are ready to stop.
Enrique, you did a fantastic job and I hope Mommy gave you a whole box of Scooby Snacks to celebrate a job well done! 🙂
