Spontaneity! That's what kids are known for, right? Well, Daniel whipped out his camera on Thursday afternoon, after Eleanor's nap and snack (if you look closely you can still see the goldfish cracker dust on her mouth) to capture a few photos. Leaving one's expensive lighting equipment out for days can be problematic when you have a small house and kids, and he really wanted to photograph all four kids in succession that week. Hence the hoodie and Superman t-shirt too, because time was of the essence, and we had company coming for dinner. Nobody asked me for a wardrobe consultation, because...well, she could be wearing a paper bag and still be THIS CUTE. The joys of being two.
In this series of photos, Daniel was experimenting with high key lighting for basic headshot-style photography. The backdrop is our living room wall; he used a three flash studio setup, and the photos were all taken during mid-afternoon hours.
Our eldest son, age 11, going on 17.
Except he can't tie his own tie, and he most certainly needed assistance in the hair styling department. He likes the goofy photos where his eyes are askew, or his mouth is gaping wide open in a mock snarl. Fortunately I get to select my favorites for the blog.
