It was a blazing summer morning in July, but three buckets of energy can make any shooting situation fun! We set out for the Heritage Park in Katy, Texas and this is a place that I’ve used consistently since moving to Houston 3 years ago. This place never disappoints and I love shooting at the same location and trying to shoot each session differently. I must admit, shooting three balls of energy can be a challenge, but it’s so awesome when the camera captures that energy and youthful bliss.
So, Zion, Elijah and Jeremiah dressed in their coral and stayed on task long enough to make some camera candy. These are my three boys, and I was asked by my wife to take them out for a session. If I didn’t blog about this session, I wouldn’t hear the end of it. They always say, “happy wife, happy life” and I want a happy life.
Jeremiah is the oldest, Zion is the middle child and Elijah is the baby. What made the session so unique was seeing all those missing teeth. Zion and Jeremiah have both been losing their baby teeth and seeing this transition is such a joy. When we set out for the open field, I decided to take the shoes off the boys and carry them to the chair, but Zion was such a dare devil and wanted to walk in the grass bare foot. As a giving father, I allowed him to do it, and he enjoyed it tremendously. On the other hand, Elijah and Jeremiah wanted no part of that, and would rather take the safest route possible. Either way you slice it, they had a good time and it’s evident in the images.
I could wax poetically about the joys of being a photographer and getting opportunities like these to capture these precious moments in my family’s lives, but it’s time to reveal some of these images. Should you visit my home, they’ll be on a wall near you.
