This morning, I had the pleasure of meeting The R family for the first time. The young boys, Nikash and Ishan, played with each other, their parents and me, of course. Hey, I like playing games as much as kids! 🙂
At the end of their San Francisco Bay Area Lifestyle Family Photography session, Nikash asked if we could do it again TOMORROW!
OMG. I love him!
You can tell these brothers have different personalities just by the way they are walking past me. Aren’t they precious?!!
Looking Up at Dad
A child looking at his parent is so endearing to me, so this image really hit a nerve.
In addition, I find the light so interesting: the sunlight hit Nikash’s face because he was looking up while everyone else’s face was dark from looking downward. The natural spotlight tells your eyes where to look.
Apples Aren’t Just For Eating
Ishan found this apple in the beginning of the shoot and brought it everywhere. He held it, he played with it, he kept it safe. Hee hee.
I love this shot because it not only reminds me of his love for this apple, but also, the light, his thoughtful expression, and his brother standing nearby gives this image extra deliciousness!
Nothing makes parents more gooey-with-love than seeing their kids hug and be sweet to each other (at least that’s true with me).
What makes this image editorial is that I shot it from behind the parents who were actually just watching me shoot the kids.
The Unplanned Certainty
This image tells such a sweet story.
You can feel the parents’ pure joy from the surprise hugs. Seriously, I can look at this image all day!
I had so much fun with your family this morning. So I guess I’ll see you again tomorrow??? Just kidding! Please tell Nikash and Ishan that I look forward to playing with them again.
