Cousins Visit the Yellow Chair ~ Avoid the HEAT
So in the midst of a crazy crazy week where my computer decided not to speak to my hard drives (apparently ever again), two swim meets for the kids, and our biggest wedding of the summer -my dear family swoops in to lend a hand. And what perfect timing! Our next Yellow Chair shoot was slated for Durham’s Central Park and now I had two of my favorite models- my gorgeous niece and nephew.
We’ve been shooting with them since they were born- and they are so much fun to work with. In light of triple digit temperatures we had a last minute mutiny about the outdoor shoot. I won’t mention who put the breaks on- but let’s just note that I still love him- and looking at these shots I can’t believe I would consider anything else. We had the lights down low, the music up high (newsboys if you want to feel the complete vibe) and the magic just flowed. Getting kids to give “a soft smile” can be next to impossible- but once they caught on to what we wanted- the hour flew by.
I looked at the back of the camera a few times and almost didn’t recognize these funny little creatures who bring so much joy to my life! I am so excited to share these with you! And I’m off to the kids next swim meet!
