Cole – Senior 2009

I know I’ve been a little behind in posting my sneak peeks.  I apologize immensely to my wonderful client folk who wait patiently at their computers just hoping I’ll get their shots on the blog today.  I’ve been a tad bit on the slow-moving side of late.  My boys have BOTH been sick – they keep tagging each other, the rain won’t stop, and I’m literally rescheduling sessions by the truckloads!  It can be a bit daunting to say the least.  Also, the sleep deprivation is starting to take hold.  All you mothers out there know how it is when you have little ones who are sick… THEY DON’T SLEEP!

Luckily, I have a great husband who, even on a worknight, is willing to relieve me a bit now and then.  Thank you, honey.

I have so many photos to post for you, but today, I’m going to post Cole’s sneak peek.  His session was nearly a week ago.  Poor guy.

Cole was the other half of Melissa’s senior session.  The two of them made the hour drive out to visit me even though it was very overcast and very wet.  It was pretty chilly, too.  Poor Melissa was nearly frozen by the time we were finished shooting.  During the entire session, we kept waiting for another downpour.  It didn’t happen though and we made it safely through our session.

Cole was a trooper.  He smiled a lot, looked great, and made my job really easy!

two_0341two_0122It’s funny but he was a huge smile kinda guy.  I kept telling him to give me the “brooding male” look  you’d see in a magazine ad for Abercrombie.  He kept trying but would break into a huge grin before I could press the shutter!  Finally, I had him close his eyes until we were ready.  I’d count, he’d open those pretty eyes, and snap!  I’d get the best photo.  It was perfect!

He has a great serious look, too!  I had to be careful not to make him serious in every shot!  He worked it out though and we got a ton of both.
