I love to shoot my own sons, being a Raleigh child photographer has allowed me to capture some beautiful images of my boys. It is few and far between that this happens as I have said before. Because I am take photos for a living they hate my camera. I truly think it’s a boy thing – girls seem to love the camera but boys don’t. Maybe it is children in general, some are great and some are a little more hard to handle.
On this day my children were persuaded with a LOT of candy to go do this shoot for me. I really didn’t want many images, just a couple, one or two. I had them dress in thick sweaters because it was cold outside, VERY cold! I knew it would be a short shoot! I recently purchased a lovely new lens and I really wanted to stretch its wings and see what it was capable of. These images are shot with a Canon 200mm f2 lens. It is truly one of the finest lenses that canon sell, and has a hefty price tag! I was pure determined to get the shot I had envisioned. I believe you have to know what exactly you want the image to look like to have a successful shoot. You have to have an idea of location, clothing and colors… I wanted a woodsy theme, I knew the lighting would be perfect.. and so with that I got the boys buckled in and we headed out on an “adventure”
