How to get cute children's photos | Sloane in the Rain at Arrabelle Square in Vail | Denver Children's Photographer

Give them a large umbrella and have them play in the rain!  Impromptu portrait sessions often yield some of my favorite work.  We were up in Vail and the rain began coming down while we waited for our hotel room to be ready and little Sloane wanted to go play in the puddles.  She loves umbrellas and was being entirely too cute with the one she had, running around and splashing in the puddles and twirling the umbrella all over the place.  One of the great benefits of professional camera gear is the ability to keep photographing when it's raining because you can get some great stuff.  If only adults could be this entertained by a little rain...

I wish I could say I set this up... I love how it looks like an umbrella with feet!

Of course Sloane wanted to carry both umbrellas in the elevator...even thought they were almost as big as she is.  On a side note, I love this elevator and can't wait to photograph a wedding in the Arrabelle hotel!
