What can I say - I have the typical photo kid. What do I mean by that? You see there is a fault, take away, a no you can't get that shot even if you took it a hundred times, type of clause, when it comes to being a photographer. Like many photographers, I can come up with some pretty amazing stuff that I want to shoot. I plan it, but the
crap stuff thats needed to do the set up, picture it in my head and then go for it. But wait, first before I can ask someone to pay me for this crazy idea, I should probably shoot it first as a practice test. You know, get the lighting right, nail down the location, and just learn from my mistakes.
So with no drop dead gorgeous models who know how to pose and move around and take direction knocking at my door, I grab the closest person next to me and MAKE them pose for me. And at this time that little person, who is still attached to the booby, would be Brooklyn!
Yes I torture the child. She has 100+ frilly dresses for all the ideas that are stuffed into my noggin, yet she would rather jump off the washing machine a million times. So when it comes to an actual photoshoot where she gets to wear one of the dresses.....
This is what I get. This is my Brooklyn. Tongue out, pointing her finger, actually saying please, twilling, hugging too tight and throwing a bunny (the fake one Swampy Acres) as hard as she can. Arms across her chest, and hopping like a bunny. That's girl! My Brooks.
