The last few days have been rather busy. Nothing to complain about there. One of the highlights of that busy-ness was a quick and fun portrait session. Fall colors are not quite in full effect but the session was successful nonetheless. The young man I was to photograph was full of personality. Like most little ones it took a minute to warm up to this stranger with the weird contraption trying to get him to smile, but he was a trooper.
The outdoor setting was a good compliment to his classic denim wardrobe. The addition of a favorite toy helped elicit a little more emotion and interaction. Unpredictability when photographing the little ones is alway an adventure, but a rewarding one.
The challenge of being true to a child’s personality should never be taken lightly. When done well it produces a lasting testament and cherished memory. Delivering photos like these to appreciative parents is one of the best things about my photography.
