So this new lens of mine (85mm 1.4) has really inspired me. I am so in love with it. I can’t wait to “shoot” some more clients with it this weekend but because it was beautiful out today and I really wanted to play, I paid my children to pose. Yes, paid. A dollar each. Really?! Yes. Sometime you just gotta do what ya gotta do and they really don’t love the camera due to the ridicules about of times I photograph them. Oh, but aren’t they perfection….at least in photographs!
My friend Heidi always brings her beautiful girls for their annual birthday session and they are always fantastic in front of the camera. Because they are such great subjects, I jumped at the idea Heidi had to do a joint session with her girls and my boys. For anyone who knows my boys, this is a really brave thing for me to attempt. Ever heard that saying that the mechanic always drives a broken down car? Well, the photographer always has the “challenging” children to photograph. Or, at least this photographer does! Needless to say, the girls were perfect, the boys gave me a run for my money. I am posting all the ones of the boys that I would actually print. There are hundreds more that I will keep to myself (those little monkeys).
Seriously, could these girls be any more fun!
Their momma has such great taste so we did a few wardrobe changes. I strongly encourage these for all my clients. It’s just so much fun. You’ll see my boys did a few too.
Now, let the craziness begin. Actually, I have already printed this first image onto a new product called a float wrap (Love them) because it’s so my boys.
It took a little encouragement but they finally embraced these hats. I love them, so they had no choice;)
Now for the FUN! My inspiration, 1985 prom. What do ya think?!
Wardrobe change, again. These fields called for a little something different.
I asked them to be nice to each other for at least one shot. Then this….
