I had a complete vision for this photo shoot that I had been wanting to do for over a year now. I was waiting for the perfect person to come along, but I actually ended up reaching out to a friend of mine from middle school (thanks for social media friendship) because I knew he had a son who would be the perfect person for my vision. Since this was a session I envisioned and wanted for my creative children’s portraiture portfolio, I treated it as a model call and HE ROCKED IT! I love learning about the parents and what their interests are themselves and then incorporating it into their children’s or family photo session. This is why I use the word Custom. I want to make it unique and custom to you.
Happy Summer, or should I say welcome to hot, humid, mosquito, rainy summer! This was a the perfect setup to capture for Florida Summers. While we are enjoying the pool days here you cant go wrong with some lemonade. Now adding a cute lemonade stand with even cuter children…. that equals pure sweetness!
These are some of my favorites from these sessions with one more in the making.
Kids imaginations are the absolute best aren’t they? I strive to speak with the parents and see if their is anything the kids love or love doing at this stage in their lives. Here in SWFL we have beautiful old oak trees that I love to take advantage of. This particular shoot was taken off the beautiful road of McGregor in Fort Myers and the neighborhoods feel oh so cozy. We simply made this plane out of a cardboard box and used the box flaps to make the propellers and tail. For the straps we used ribbon and cut slits in the box to weave it through and drew some detail on the box with a black sharpie! Oliver had a blast flying his plane, i’m not even sure he realized I was taking his pictures.
