You would never guess by looking at these beautiful people that we took these photos in July in Louisiana. IT. IS. HOT. Despite that little fact I can say with confidence that we all finished this shoot with smiles on our faces and laughter in our hearts. We all had a good time!
Oh boy, all boy! His momma told me he likes art and drawing, so I attempted some related conversation during my one on one photos with him. I have a son that is a talented artist, so you'd think I could come up with some decent conversation right? Wrong! I was in full artist mode myself and my social skills just couldn't keep up. So I asked him what he likes to draw. To which he responded, "anything." So I said, ummmmm (because my brain had nothing). Then, ok so you would draw a dog chasing his tail? Can we say lame attempt at connecting and getting your subject to give a genuine smile? Regardless of my inadequacy, he photographs so handsomely!
This singer and dancer nailed every pose I suggested. She was kind, fun, and so full of joy. I have NEVER in my life said I wanted to go back to my childhood, and especially not to my teenage years. She just kind of makes me want to though. Oh she wants a camera, so she was really interested in what I was doing. I just loved when she was fascinated with the bokeh when looking at a few photos on my camera screen. One day when I really have consistency with my technique I'd love to do some teaching for a few friends that have expressed interest.
