Children Portrait – San Antonio & Austin

Filed in: Uncategorized

Straight up: I’m not much of a kid person. Well actually that’s not true – it depends on the kid, you know?

But when I told my friend I didn’t really photograph kids, I didn’t realize at the time that there was a specific genre I had in my head that I didn’t want to shoot – kids in wagons, kids on swings, kids in parks, kids playing with other kids. 

Since I started shooting more luxury and glamour, I realized I wanted to bring children into this world. I wanted them to be RL’d (“Ralph Lauren”‘ed, my word), dressed up, poised, but still maintain that essence of childhood. 

These two girls reminded me of my own childhood with my little sister, and I have to say, I think all three of us massively enjoyed ourselves – I came away thinking maybe kids weren’t so bad after all, and the girls came away realizing that the only reason that having your picture taken was ever NOT fun was because their brothers were involved.

    Finally responding to bribery, my two tomboys agreed to cheerfully cooperate in the glamour portrait session with you above- as a Christmas present for me. By the end, they were giggling and wanting more. You worked magic. Thanks so much!- mom

    Beautifully done! You certainly captured the Ralph Lauren look.

The W family had their reveal last night and so now I can finally show these off - and one of these is a gorgeous 36×36” portrait above their fireplace!
