Cowboy Cole and Close to Crying Caden

Shooting my boy is always a great lesson in shutter speed; the kid doesn't hold still. So, the other day while he was at pre-school I grabbed a little whose face I love to shoot (not to mention, the doll will hold still for as long as I like; he is great for practing in manual.) Cole is so fun to take pictures of. We had a great time taking advantage of some of our local buildings.

I liked to call this shoot, the first part of it at least, Cowboy Cole.

A little wardrobe change and enter Caden, the crying brother. (I can only say that because every picture of me for ummm, like the first 5 years of my life was filled with tears. I actually don't mind it when kids crying during pictures; it's who they are right now, right?)


Wardrobe. (Vickie, knows me well. She knew I would want to more than just the cowboy stuff. She even put the boys in bright colors, "I know you like them Kam!" Thanks Vick!!)

When I don't have a large black thing in his face he actually thinks I am pretty cool. I am surprised he isn't more enchanted by my camera; he loves transformers. ;)

I love this shot of kids for some reason. I just think it is innocent and sweet and shows their gorgeous eyelashes. You can't buy eyelashes that beautiful!

The tears kind of started coming right about...

But Brother was there to help.

And help he did.

And...the money shot. This one will be going on the website. Mine that is. I bought my .com. I am just trying to get all my paperwork in order so I can roll with this photography biz. Keep your fingers crossed...

Aw, the little one with tears is too cute! Well they are all cute but especially him. My ideal bedtime is 10:30 since my alarm goes off at 6:30 every morning. I love me some 8 hours of sleep! So close to midnight and still on the computer? Scandalous for me!

Aeryn was sitting on my lap as I was looking at this post and our conversation went something like this:
"Mama, who is that?"
"It's a little boy named Cole."
"Oh, I love Cole."

Good work. He's already building a fan club from your shots ;)

why oh why oh why can't I live in California?!?! I would LOVE to see what you could do with my boys. If you can make crying look good, you could make anything look good. We're always trying to do our own pictures with the remote, and we take about 100 only to have ONE turn out kind of, sort of good.

I am THRILLED that you're going to have your very own business. You will do wonderful things with it I think. Congrats!!!

Good job Kam! The cowboys shots are awesome. I would love to see them in B/W too and a little grain added. These are my fav thus far. Keep the hits coming. Good luck with the biz. I'm still figuring it all out too!

Paige said...

Good luck with the business! With your passion, creativity, personality, and talent I know you will do well!! Your new watermark with the j reminds me of a scrabble tile. :) Great looking pictures!

Celeste said...

Congratulations on your business. I know that if you lived in Colorado you would be our sole photographer!!! I love your creativity! Seriously your pictures should be in magazines as far as I am concerned! Not to mention you would be fun to work with!

Fantastic job as always!! Vickie's boys are so cute!!!!

Ronee said...

oh my gosh, those boys are soooooo cute. The little one kinda looks a bit like my Maddy (especially with his pouty lip). You are soooooo good. My fav is the one of Cole that you titled "The Cowboy"...his eyes and smile are awesome. My second fav is the one of Cole's eyelashes. Eddie loved the eyelash one too. All are superb. Your friend will be stoked.

Rebecca said...

Kam, you have found your calling in life. You bring out the beauty of the moment. I mean this when I say it, I can't wait for you to shooot my family!

Danielle said...

Cole is just the cutest thing ever! I am so excited to have you take our family pictures. Do you think you could make us look as good as all your other subjects :o)!
