Paint Fight | Batavia, IL Family Photographer

It’s not often I learn a little life lesson from a photoshoot but I did yesterday and I wanted to share it with you.

The very first squeeze of paint from Alice to her Mom went directly into Mom’s mouth. Now, some parents would immediately get upset, scold their child, get angry with them. Paint fights are messy. Not every parent would do this with their children. Nicole did. She didn’t worry about the mess. As a photographer and a Mom, I was SO happy to see Nicole laugh it off.

This session could have easily turned sour right away. I’ve seen it before. If a child is scolded or feels negative energy from you before or during a session, it affects them. I’ve seen this happen too many times and it always makes me sad.

Because Nicole laughed it off and had carefree fun energy, Alice literally giggled during the entire session. I can still hear her giggles. She painted Mom’s face, hair, clothes. She had a BLAST and they made fun awesome memories together.

Nicole, you’re doing it right!
