I’ve been photographing this little man since he was born at 26 weeks old. My first images of him were of his teeny tiny little 2 lbs. body hooked up to numerous tubes. Fast forward four years and here he is as a happy, spunky, adorable and lovable little boy!!! I know I say it all the time, but I cannot believe how quickly time flies by!!! It seems like just yesterday I was headed over to the NICU to visit with him and his mommy.
Now if you’re wondering how we got him to pose for some of the images and hold that pose long enough to photograph…there are two answers—one is age and the other is lots of years of practice of being in front of the camera. His mama photographs him a lot so he is such a ham in front of the camera. I love it!!! He makes my job that much easier because he’s so comfortable in front of the camera and is now at the age where he will follow most directions. There were certain points when he told us that he didn’t want to do a pose and he would rather pose himself. So we obliged because compromising in photography can get you that much farther with children of young ages 🙂 And of course some of the best images are candid ones.
Thank you Dari and Tysen for a wonderful morning filled with laughter!!! I enjoyed my time photographing your little man again!!! He is a ROCK STAR in front of the camera!!! Can’t wait to photograph him again 🙂
