My boysSeptember 4, 2009
I love my boys. Especially when they are so cute … and giggly … and cooperative … and in front of a cool wall to be photographed!
I just wish I’d known I was going to run into this wall. If I had, I would have dressed them in something more ‘portrait-worthy’ … To me, this image highlights how clothing plays a key role in the outcome of successful portraits and as such, should be considered carefully. If I had actually planned for this shoot, I would not have chosen to have a huge logo emblazoned across Lincoln’s chest and would have opted for a less busy T-shirt on Nate. Too distracting. Bright, bold colors in a coordinating color scheme across the two boys would have greatly enhanced this shot.
It’s still a good image. But it could have been great. That being said, I still absolutely adore this image and will proudly display it on my walls.
