Yesterday I spent the afternoon photographing the Sobel family. This lovely family came to me via Gustavo Mottola, a good friend and very talented make-up artist. I have worked with Gustavo for years as he does the make up for many of the brides whose weddings I shoot. Leanne is a long-time client of his. She hired him to do hair and make-up for the portrait session to celebrate her son's first birthday. Gustavo recommended me for the job and thus we were connected. Leanne and her husband, David, have an adorable son who was a great sport during our two hour shoot. He has a happy child with a serious face and we did everything we could to get a smile out of him. By the end of the session I do believe that we were successful in catching a few.
What a nice family to spend an afternoon with. I do hope we get to do this again someday.
