Has it really been a month since I have posted on the blog? It's yearbook crunch time and I am spending my days dealing with deadlines and production problems! But, I have also been able to photograph some adorable children and I am getting their blog posts ready for you to read ASAP!
First up are Michael, Nicholas and Jacob. After postponing their shoot for storms, we met on an overcast and misty day (has anyone else noticed that the weekdays this spring have been beautiful and the weekends a soggy mess? ). I love this area of the Gunpowder for the open grassy area, stream, and rocks. Usually the evening light through the trees is wonderful (when you can see the sun!) and the colors are great. Usually. On an overcast day, it can be a little dark. Thankfully their mama chose browns, oranges and turquoise which POPPED against the backdrop. I love the color combos!
The boys indulged me and my posing requests for all of 5 seconds and then the water, rocks, trees, mud, etc. called to them and they were off! I'm pretty sure we should have known this setting would be too tempting to them! So, I let them lead and I followed. And, I truly believe that is when the best portraits are taken - when children are being themselves and loving what they are doing. They have a pretty great mom to hang back and let them go, in new clothes:)
I did manage to get them to look my way every once in a while:
And, I am so happy that I witnessed them being incredibly sweet and loving brothers:)
