Shauna’s First Communion

Picture of the Month – April 2006

I had a lot of fun photographing Shauna in her First Communion dress. I’ve photographed her before as part of the Ferndale Dance Academy productions, but one on one I found out how much of a little charmer she is. My favorite way to work with kids is to just let them be themselves, and even though this might have the look of a posed shot, it wasn’t. We had finished one set of poses and I was trying to think of what to do next when Shauna decided to relax against the column. Recognizing a good opportunity when it comes my way, I pressed the shutter to capture the best shot of the session. Just a charming girl being herself.
