Battista Easter

I met these wonderful kids last week for Easter photos. They were loud, energetic, and silly, but who isn’t at that age? I knew ahead of time that the little boy was autistic. I had an idea it was going to be difficult to get participation out of him. He came in, took a bite of my fake carrot, took a couple laps around the studio, climbed on the couch and found a lot of distractions. I took photos of the little girl first, who was definitely not camera shy. She did a fabulous job and the photos came out great! The little boy was calm, watching a video on his mom’s phone. We tried getting him to sit for some photos, he was not having it. I thought, well maybe if we turned what he was watching on his moms phone on the screen he would sit still. It worked for the most part. The only problem was that he was not looking at the camera, he was tuned in on the screen watching Paw Patrol. It was okay though… He was still, he was calm, and I was still able to grab a couple shots of him smiling. Check them out…
