Victoria and her six month old baby Noah reached out to me to take their Christmas card photo, we showed up for a sunrise session at Circle C park, the weather was around 40 degrees and despite it being cold Noah never cried or showed any discomfort which was such a relief. Victoria has recently moved to Austin from Los Angeles California and this is her first winter in Austin. She is a working single mom at the same time she is a student working on her career, She is definitely a perfect role model for handling a young baby, a job and studying all at the same time by herself. It is only a matter of time for Noah to grow up and for Victoria to have her career path set in front of her, I hope these photos are a beautiful reminder for them that they made it through this phase of their lives together.
While we were in LA for Josh's Grandfather's 100th Birthday, we stayed at the same Airbnb with Josh's sister. Right before heading to the airport in the morning Josh's niece came to our room and introduced her little sheep plushie to me and told me the story of the 3 little pigs and the big bad wolf. When I asked her if I could take a picture of her with her sheep plushies she agreed. We headed outside in the patio, and as soon as we got situated Josh grabbed his camera and came to take some shots as well. I asked him if I could get some images with the two of them and here are the result. Sometimes it stuns me how much easier it is to shoot children compared to adults, their smiles are genuine and their poses comes so natural as they seems to be actually having fun with the session and appear comfortable in front of camera.
Out of this set the two images below that I submitted to Vogue Italia were picked up by Photo Vogue
