I love to shoot in the city. Sure, parks and forests and lakes and fields are lovely too, and I enjoy shooting in those locations. But there is something about the urban landscape that is so fascinating to me.
Maybe it is the fact that you can turn a corner and have a whole new location that is nothing like the previous, or maybe it is just that I appreciate that a building always has one side that has some shade. No light hunting for me! ;)
I headed out with these two adorable guys on a crisp Saturday afternoon to capture some urban images for my commercial portfolio. I am starting to make some contacts in the children’s clothing market and want to have lots of different looks for all different styles. Plus, I have a bit of a boy shortage in my world, so it is always fun to hang out with someone who is not talking about Justin Bieber or asking to paint their nails!
I was lucky enough to photograph these monkeys with their parents last year and I knew that they would be perfect models for this shoot. Zaccardi, the oldest, has amazing ice blue eyes that are crazy beautiful. He is gonne be a lady-killer someday, since he already has the “smoulder” effect down to perfection. His younger brother, Milo, is a big personality with the most infectious smile. He loves to be silly and can really appreciate a good fart joke.
I am so lucky to have clients that are willing to share their time and their family with me. Thanks Mackenzie, Danny, Zaccardi and Milo for braving the cold!
