I just got home from an early morning session with the sweetest family of three. They were awesome! R & R (aka mom and dad) were both so nice and they were totally up for anything. They went along with me on my ideas and did not hesitate at all (though they may have wondered what I was up to).
This family has great style. ’R’ (as in ‘mom’) brought along really cute clothes and fun ideas. I love that! It is so great to collaborate on the styling of photos. Thanks so much, R! I appreciate that you had colors in mind and a vision for the style of your images. I think we matched up together well on what we had in mind. I hope I came through for you.
So, I just started reviewing the images on my computer and I am loving what I see. Can’t wait to start editing — but before I get to that I just had to make a quick post to share one of my favorites.
Let me explain what makes this picture special…
Notice the awesome ‘I heart Jake Ryan’ t-shirt?
Any fan of 16 candles would love it.
‘R’ (mom) is indeed a 16 candles fan (what child of the 80′s isn’t?)
…but there’s more to it. Her adorable little boy’s name is actually Jake Ryan!
How cool is that?
Here’s what I’ve worked on so far…
Isn’t he the cutest little guy? He really knows how to ham it up too! Every picture that I have reviewed is great because he shows such amazing natural expression. It’s hard to choose just a few to share.
Dad certainly has a magic touch with his son. He knew just how to bring out the personality in this little tot. Mom really knew what she was doing too – she even came prepared with a giant rainbow lollipop (you will see pics of that later). These are 2 parents who know how to keep a child happy! Seriously – this job was almost too easy. I did not have to work very hard to elicit any expression. I just watched them do their thing and clicked away…loving every minute of it. I always have my bag of tricks for toddlers and children but there was little need for it on this outing.
Little Jake Ryan is such an uber stylish toddler! Check out these cool shoes…
