I knew this session was going to be tons of fun when I got the very first email from their mom! She was wanting colorful, airplanes, all American boy and cowboys and Indians shoot. That may seem like a lot to squeeze into one session, but it worked out just right. I can usually read kids really well and know when it is time for the session to flow to something else.
I loved how she went with primary colors, very all American, preppy and classic! I almost always have this quilt in the back of my car for sessions. It has a colorful side and an off white side. Many many happy kids and families have sat on it!
When a kid’s eyelashes are long and beautiful, I adore getting shots of them looking down or closing their eyes.
To change the look up a little, they went shirtless! It ended up being one of my favorite brother shots ever! We have this printed on metal in the studio and it looks so perfect. Don’t be afraid to book a family or child session in the summer, even though it’s hot in Texas we move quickly and the colors are so rich and green.
They brought along the “so fly” banner, which I thought was just perfect to go with the airplanes. I believe she got it on etsy.
The cowboys and Indians part was definitely my favorite! Nothing says “rough and tumble little boys” like some cowboys and indians running around! It turned out just how I was hoping!
If you have found some crazy ideas on pinterest or somewhere else, do not be afraid to tell me when we are planning your session! We are really good at taking something that may seem cheesy or too much of a theme and making it look adorable! Let’s bring your idea to life and create some beautiful art!
