I have been photographing Carter since he was just a puddle in his mom’s arms at 6 months old. Watching him grow, getting to know his parents and documenting his childhood has been such a honor. (If you’ve been to the studio, you’ll recognize him from the Fine Art Canvas Cluster of him hanging on the wall.) At 4 1/2, he loves trains. When his parents suggested going to the Southeastern Railway Museum for his session, I was so excited. It’s so inspiring to go to a location that is special to my clients and totally new to me. All the old train cars, engines and train tracks were not only fun to explore but were also so textured (and you know how I love contrasting textures!) Rusted out trains, overgrown grass, even tacky upholstery on the train seats provided such interesting backdrops to this fun and adventurous kids portrait session.
Once again, I couldn’t choose just one image for the Picture of the Day, so I chose three that are expressive of Carter’s personality and his relationship with his parents.
I’ve recently been photographing a lot of adventure portraits – at the Atlanta Zoo, fire stations in Virginia-Highland and Marietta, at an ice cream shop in Atlanta, an ice skating rink – but they’ve all been portraits for boys. I need some girl time! I need some dress-up time, ballet class, arts & crafts, tea party or anything else your little girl loves. Contact us today for information about our adventure sessions.
