It’s so interesting when you photograph your friend’s children, because they often look so much like their parents. I have known Ben and Eva’s father since I was in the six grade, so while I was editing these photos, all I could see was Aaron (dad) and Lindsie (mom). Ben and Eva, in addition to looking like their parents, also share their sense of humor that is witty and wry beyond their years. I know for a fact that Aaron was the same way as a child because I have been laughing at his special brand of humor since 1986 or so. Let’s just say they kept me on my toes and made it really hard to keep a straight face during the session. Usually, I try to make kids smile and laugh and have a good time, but it’s hard to do when the kids are just flat out funnier than you. I need to up my game I think.
Yeah, they are pretty cute.
I was asking Ben to smile a little bigger while we were taking these and Evalyn came to the rescue. She grabbed his cheeks and pushed them into a grin and said, “How does this look? Is this better?”
This was Eva’s pose. I like it.
Thanks for the laughs Ben and Eva! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
