I’ve mentioned before that I recently photographed three different kids named Max; they were all so much fun, but this Max’s shoot was enhanced by the presence of his little brother, Colby! Max is about two and a half and Colby is a charming ten weeks and they both have incredible personalities. My job was so easy – who could help but capture the cuteness?
It was a chilly November Sunday, but the kids didn’t seem to mind! Max got very into bringing me the last tenacious dandelion heads from the backyard lawn while Colby chilled on the bench, smiling away.
I’ve found that all you need to make photos with kids is an environment the child is comfortable in; there’s no need for expensive locations or complicated props. The backyard play-set is perfect!
I absolutely loved working with this little family; Max and Colby’s parents are so sweet, calm, and funny, and the kids obviously benefit from their good parenting. Even though Colby looks a little serious in the photo below, I think it could be holiday card material!
