I’ve had some great opportunities to make images of children lately. Kids are so fun— they haven’t learned to be self-conscious yet, and are so full of energy.
Avery was very comfortable in front of the camera! By the end of the portrait session, we were all convinced that she has a bright future in modeling.
Avery and her mom had picked out this new outfit just for the photoshoot.
The studio floor is heated, so there were no cold feet!
Avery dressed up as an Inuit princess.
It was obvious during the session that Avery and her mom Jessica have a close and fun relationship.
Amalie was just a few weeks old when these images were made with her mom and dad.
Roberto speaks Spanish to little Amalie, and Radka speaks Czech. The rest of us speak English, so Amalie will grow up trilingual, or just very confused.
Amalie is always peacefully content. Almost always.
There are few things more wonderously beautiful than a newborn child.
Devi came for a portrait session with her mom and grandma, and, as you can tell from this image, she is full of life!
Steven Meyer, of Mary Meyer Toys, asked me to spend a day with a group of five-year-olds playing with Mary Meyer's delightful stuffed toys. Yes, I got paid to play with kids for a day
We were doing the shoot at a home that had a chalkboard wall. What a perfect backdrop!
One of my favorite images from the day.
At one point we were all focused on a shoot at one end of the playroom. When we turned around, Phoebe had arranged this complete set-up and was patiently waiting for me to take her picture.
I love the nostalgia and timelessness of this image.
This was the last shot of the day, and the kids were tired, so I asked one of the dads to cheerlead. Within a few seconds the children started to smirk, then smile, then burst into laughter. Amazed by the quick turnaround, I looked to see what Dave was doing, only to discover that he was wiggling his backside right above my head.
