DEATHERAGE

FAMILY

Illinois. A saying around here is "if you don't like the weather just wait, it'll change!"  Well, it changed from morning to the afternoon when we knocked out the Deatherage shoot I think at least 3 times. It started with a mild steady rain early morning, then to some short periods of big fat snowflakes then to chilly winds.  Judah held it together very well for being 2 and in the chilly wind with a guy pointing a big camera at him.  We kept his attention by constantly looking for flying monkeys.....hey, whatever it takes.  We did find out that mom hand a hand in taking care of our nephew that was in the hospital clinging to life 7 years ago.  He's all good now and we have a connection with a client that we honestly didn't know about until this shoot. Thats why I use the adage "treat everyone with respect and honesty in every aspect of your life", you never know where they might fit into your life years later.

Maybe he saw one of those flying monkeys....

KEPLER

FAMILY

We met the Kepler family roughly 9 months ago on little Jack's newborn shoot.  Not only did Jack  rock it but we could've shot with him all night.  Fast forward 9 months and Jack is a little more mobile but still rocked it.  A little disclaimer,  sometimes we VERY subtly "enhance" a set of eyes. Jack's eyes are completely UNTOUCHED!  They have to be the richest blue eyes I've seen on a little guy.  

We just followed him around killing a few minutes, then he stops and gives a look. Click click click,  so easy.

This is what an intrigued 9 month old looks like.  Love it!

FAMILY

Tonight we met the De La Torre family.  Sometimes we have to work a little harder to get great shots, other times the work isn't needed.  This little family was a breeze!!!  Not going to lie, the temps were up there and the humidity was almost as high.  I still have some sand in my pocket from laying down and grabbing some images of that little 5 month old.  She may have my baby fever up a bit..... Shoots like this reaffirm why we love this job.  We hope to see them again & Betty, the little Maltese that made a cameo in a shot or two.

I absolutely love this shot.
