Peavler Children’s Portraits – {Macon, MO Children’s Photographer} September 16, 2009

Filed under: Children — edobson86 @ 6:00 AM

Working with Tabitha Thompson of Simply Weddings Photography has been such a blessing. She is truly one of those people who just can’t help but show kindness to everyone. A true fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23)! In addition to letting me shoot alongside of her at weddings, she’s already referring clients! Seriously? How cool is that?


The Peavler’s booked a children’s session with me in August and as soon as they arrived I was super excited – THEY ARE CUTE! Plus, they were excited to get their pictures taken. I recruited my husband to help out for the first few minutes of the session while I captured a couple pictures of the three of them together. Then, I was able to work with each child one-on-one. The time I get to spend with kids individually is so important in gaining their trust. During this time, it’s just me, the child and my camera. I ask them about things they like to do and BAM! they’re suddenly comfortable in front of the camera. I talked to Madison about iCarly, Jaron about spiderman and all his tricks, and I simply talked to Megan. Valerie told me before the session that Megan was a great baby as long as someone talked to her, which is why she’s a big fan of the food network! Isn’t that adorable?!


I absolutely loved this session. Thank you, Valerie, for having such a great family!

    I loved these photos. I love the lighting and the backgrounds are real and fabulous. I like how you got the background colors but the scenery is faded focusing on the kids themselves. Great job!

    Aww…you are too kind! You are an awesome photographer and an awesome person. I can’t get over how clear and lifelike your images are. Everyone I share them with is singing your praises. The first time I visited your blog I knew I had to have you photograph my children. I will always treasure these pictures! I told you I wanted to capture how much my big kids love their baby sister, and I think you did that beautifully! You went above and beyond in every way and I am now one of your biggest fans!
