Yesterday I had the privilege of documenting a day in the life of Luca. When I arrived, he was still taking a nap, so I made some new friends with the family pets.
Luca is the son of Gina and Jeff, I photographed Jeff’s sisters wedding last June. Click here to see Erin’s wedding images. Anyway, Gina and I quietly entered Luca’s room while he was still asleep and this is what we found. Look at that cute little hand!!
I think it’s safe to say that Luca and I hit it off right from the the start.
Not only is Gina fabulous to spend time with, but she also quite possibly one of the most gorgeous people I ever seen. Seriously, she could be a super model. I’m trying to convince her to put her wedding gown on so that we can have some fun.
Look at those eyes, I love it!!
This is funny… Luca was trying to get my camera and because I never stop shooting I got this image.
As a result, I let him explore my camera and he got this image. Not bad except he cut off my head!! I think he was just trying to be artsy. LOL
By the end of the day we were all pretty tired.
I accept a very limited number of documentary lifestyle sessions because it’s important to me that people “get” my concept. I want children to run around, have fun, play with toys and just be natural so that I can capture their personality. Asking a child to sit still and smile for a studio portrait feels very unnatural to me. I’ve received several inquiries in the last few months regarding these sessions, but as soon as the parent indicates that they would like a nice posed photograph of their child in their best clothes, I suggest that they call Picture People.
