Okokok, my godson is the absolute cutest boy in the world, but these two girls must be the absolute cutest girls in the world.
I was asked to do a shoot with them, and so I did. We spent the afternoon with the family, got some really good food, and I got some really nice pictures. It took some improvisation here and there, because I don’t pose them, I don’t tell them where to go stand and how to smile and where to look. Especially with kids in this age that’s just a pain in the neck. So I shoot them as they come along. I don’t keep the camera in their face all the time, but I keep it near so I can grab it quickly.
Admittedly you miss moments, but on the other side, you get pictures you don’t get when you have the kids pose for you. It’s so much more natural like this, and it’s so much more satisfying. For me in any case, but I think also for the parents, because they get pictures of their little treasures/goofs (or both 😉 ) that actually shows who they REALLY are, and not what the photographer wants them to be.

Just before Christmas I had the privilege of photographing a friend of mine and his family. I’ll keep this short, but I couldn’t keep this from you. It’s just too cute!

Awhile back I wrote a little bit about our godson. He’s the cutest boy you’ve ever seen. Recently me and the better half have been so busy that we haven’t really had time to meet up with godson and parents, and you know how kids in that age grow and change in an instant…
The other night mom and godson came over for dinner and I managed to quickly grab a few shots. And the little guy is just getting cuter and cuter!
Love him! 🙂

It’s been awhile… It’s been madhouse in this end of the line.
It’s been long days and short nights. And it will be like this for a while still, it seems.

I’ve got some Canary Island stuff still in queue, but this is going first. There’s no way anyone’s going to out-cute this 😉

Two of my good friends asked me to take some pictures of them during their pregnancy.
We got together about a week before they were officially due and had a great morning together.
Lovely mom-to-be was just radiating happiness 🙂
And of course lovely daddy-to-be did just the same 🙂
And I’m The Godfather [insert tacky one-liner here 😀 ). WOOOHOOO!!   🙂
