Model Photography - AvaHere’s my latest model photography shoot with a great little model, Ava. She just so happens to be my beautiful little granddaughter too! I may be a little biased when I say she’s the cutest little model, but, once you see her model photography, I think you’ll agree. She lives with her mother, my daughter, and father in Lincoln, Nebraska.

She doesn’t get the opportunity to come down our way very often, so when she does, you can bet that Grandpa is going to get out the camera and go to town. It helps a great deal that she’s one of the most photogenic little models you’ll ever see.

This particular model photography session was taken at my home in Bella Vista, Arkansas. It was getting late in the day, so I decided to use my Sony G Master 85, 1.4 lens. Not only is it one of the greatest portrait lenses available, it’s a great piece of glass when the light starts to fade.

Ava isn’t quite into model photography just yet. She would much rather be running around playing with my dog Max, a little Pug. As you can see in the pictures below, she and Max became quite close… Literally!

When I’m shooting model photography with children, I love when there’s an animal involved. Children will pay lots of attention the animal and give me the opportunity to capture some of the most beautiful candid shots. If you ever do the type of model photography that involves an animal, just be sure it’s a fun, trusting animal. Ava had only seen Max one other time before, but the were friends from the moment they saw one another.

Since this model photography session with Ava, my Granddaughter and Daughter have gone back home to Lincoln. I’m really going to miss them, but I’ll see them again, and until then, I have some great photographs to hang on the wall.
