I was thrilled when this handsome little man’s parents asked me to take his six month photos! I work with his daddy and already knew that Mr. Mac was a cutie, but when his wonderful mama arrived with some of the sweetest little boy outfits I’ve ever seen, I’m sure his parents regretted choosing me as their photographer because I couldn’t stop “ooing” and “awwing” over everything that Kim took out of the bag. But seriously. Have you ever seen a better dressed little guy?
It was a rather gloomy, chilly day, and Mr. Mac definitely gave me some serious looks, but I love how this session turned out. My office for my full-time job is downtown, and I pass an alley a few times a week that I’ve fallen in love with. I’ve been wanting to use it for a session for months, but most of my sessions have been for little girls lately. Mac was the perfect client!
Although the session was for Mac, Mac is lucky to have a big sister, Ellie, who adores him, and I had to grab a few shots of this beautiful girl. To give Mac a break in the alley, I asked Ellie if she wanted to have her photo taken. Just as I was about to tell her what I wanted her to do, Ellie went to the middle of the ally, put one hand on her hip, cocked her head to the side, and gave me a grin. It was incredible and hilarious at the same time.
I loved every minute of this session. If I ever need someone to choose outfits for a children’s session, I’m hiring Kim, and if I ever need a model, I’m definitely hiring Ellie. The Burke family is wonderful, and I hope I have an opportunity to work with them again!
