I just loved photographing these two brothers! Their mom wanted an urban, edgy feel to the portraits and we were both looking for something unique. Anyone recognize this location? The boys, a freshman in high school and a 7th grader, were super easy and fun to work with too! This is often a forgotten age when it comes to kids portraits, but it shouldn’t be!

Getting kids to smile, (I mean REALLY smile, not a camera smile) isn’t always easy. I try to talk with them about things they are interested in, get to know them a little bit. I don’t remember what Jordan and I were talking about but it got him to really smile. Maybe it was flying.

I do remember what Aiden and I were talking about that made him smile. If I remember correctly, I think it was girls. 🙂
