It took a while to get this shoot on the calendar, but perseverance won–and I think that they will be happy we persevered.
J answered the door with his dad. He was immediately full of questions, several about Star Wars, and he is an avid fan. With a memory for character names that I have long forgotten. His questions were entertaining. For the first time I was asked what planet I was from (because in Star Wars this is a valid question). He also pointed out a small scratch on his cheek and was explaining how he got it. I told him that it was no problem, I could take that right out of the photos. He looked concerned, “will it hurt?” Lesson learned on explaining things more thoroughly to 3 year olds.
L was slightly more reserved. She was coaxed into wearing a dress, and I am so glad that she did–little girls in skirts at twilight, you can hardly do better. She showed herself to be part model and part prankster during the shoot. She and her brother got one another rolling.
We visited the Charles River park in Brighton as the sun was getting low. The light was wonderful and we even worked around a road race. The family has lots of memories in this park, and I hope that we added another great one. Thanks for a great shoot, McN family!
