As a photographer, we occasionally get that one individual that really does not want to cooperate with us. The key is not to expect a photo that can be placed on Vogue or whatever else magazine that you can think of. When I take photos, my desire is to capture the personality of the individual.
This guy is absolutely adorable. He is a bundle of energy and is nothing but a walking miracle. (I may be a tad bias.) He hates having his picture made. In fact, when it is time for school pictures he typically has a scowl on his face. The scowl is why I was blessed to take his picture, I have the time to work with the child.
Older brother is a ham. He loves his picture taken and will pose all day long if you let him. There may be problems once he is older. He is a cute fella' and was absolutely ecstatic to be climbing trees for pictures. Of course, at 10, who wouldn't want to climb a tree? My problem was convincing him we were finished.
This guy is a veteran. He knows what pose he wants and is ready to get it done. A no-nonsense type of guy. Ready to be an adult and take on the world, but still happy to climb some trees. Like his brother, having fun is important. I enjoyed doing their shoot.
