I know I have some anxious eyes waiting for these, so I’ll get right to the goods. To sum up, photographing 12 families in one day?? A workout! I loved seeing some familiar faces, a few of these guys I’ve been photographing since they were born! Thanks to all the guests, and stay tuned for your galleries to go live this weekend. Many thanks to K&S for being great hosts!
I’m behind on blogging my sessions, I think that is called Fall. So many things to do, and there doesn’t seem to be enough time to get everything done! I have to share this session though, which I shot a couple weeks ago downtown in the Public Gardens, which is one of my very favorite places to meet up for sessions.First off, look at Mr. A’s eyelashes! It just doesn’t seem fair that boys are blessed with such nice lashes while girls try their whole lives to reproduce that look! I just love this photograph, so often my favorite images are the “inbetween moments”. But of course, I got some smiling shots that mom will love.Just look at Miss G’s eyes, a piercing blue. Her mom says she holds her hands that way all the time, and I love that I captured her typical pose.And the beautiful Miss R was so great with her little sister, happy to push her in the stroller or hold her in her lap for portraits.This is one of my favorites from the session, mom jumped in and played with miss G leaving her in a fit of giggles. Picture perfect moment.Thank you to the M family for a great morning!
Selecting clothing for your session, part two, and this time its all about your little guy. Again, working with layers and subtle pattern I’ve put together a casual but trendy look, I know from experience with my 4 year old nephew that little boys don’t want to get dressed up and stand around, they want to play, and this outfit certainly reflects that. Layer a lightly patterned oxford with a knit vest and a nice warm (and adorable!) jacket with a cool wooly collar. Add jeans and some converse sneaks and you have the perfect outfit for romping around outside and being a boy. This look was mostly pulled from Gap, except for the blue vest which is from The Children’s Place.
Alternatively, I’d love to see the jeans and sneakers with a white tee and blazer and maybe a loose tie in some shots for a bit of punch. The options are endless, and in individual portraits I love when the outfit has an unexpected quirk :)
