This kid is the coolest. From his tie and untucked shirt to his freckles and fashionable hair, he has cool cat written all over him. My heart leaped when I saw that he was our ClickAway model during Elena S. Blair’s Beyond the Smile: Honest Child Portraiture. I’ve always loved her work and jumped at the chance to shoot with her, and by “jumped” I mean stalked the conference schedule until this class opened. I grabbed my seat and the class was full about two minutes later. No joke. Yeah for stalking! Flash forward to the conference, I meet Elena and then this kid shows up. This is how my ClickAway started … one kid, 4 totally different shots in a matter of minutes. Amazing. I love photographing children – big ones, little ones, baby ones too. Stay tuned for more of my ClickAway kids. I intended to spend most of my conference exploring new skills like the low light images I recently posted, but my heart veered towards kids over and over again. I’m so glad I listened. I had THE. BEST. TIME. Being able to add this urban variety to my children’s portfolio was such a win win. I can’t wait to start utilizing all the great urban locations in and around Charlotte and Matthews. My head is already spinning with ideas. Until then, meet Caden . . . one really cool kid.
