{children} Presley and Miles

Presley and Miles' mom contacted me for their birthday pictures.  Presley turned seven and Miles turned four.  They were quite a pair and so incredibly easy to work with.  When I arrived on location I saw that Miles was dressed in what looked to be a Superman pajama set.  Believe it or not, I was excited.  Because if you have children, especially young children (and boys to boot), you know that it's all about pretend play and dressing up as their favorite superhero.  The funkier, the better.  I love capturing kids in their natural state, and to be honest, this part of the shoot couldn't have been any more natural.  He was so stinkin' cute.  Presley was a different story, but not much different.  As we were waiting for Miles' outfit change we sat on the swing and had a nice chat about life...favorite colors...and barbies.  She told me all about her birthday party and all the presents she received.  We connected.  It was super cute.  When it was time for her to shine, we headed to the river where the Riverstage was located.  Her plan was to get on stage and pretend to be a rockstar.  It was fitting for her age group, but we realized upon arrival that we couldn't get on the stage.  Didn't stop her, though.  She rocked her part of the shoot like it was nobody's business.  She's an amazing little girl and I highly enjoyed our conversation...even if it included barbies.  Great job, kiddos!
