the coolest little dude, Charlie.

ok seriously, I feel so lucky. Photography is such a joy for me, just being able to create photographs is a treat. But add to that, the amazing people I get to meet because of it and wow. I am just so lucky. Really blessed is a much better word.

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Charlie and his beautiful mom, Krissy, a few weeks ago and boy did I have fun! Charlie sang, he danced, he jumped and ran, he LAUGHED and made me laugh. He was a total doll. Beautiful, soulful eyes and amazing smile. I wanted to put him in my pocket and bring him home with me! I will be posting some more images of him in the coming days because I just love him, lol!! I sincerely hope Krissy enjoys these. And I hope you can all see through these photographs just how much fun we had that beautiful, sunny afternoon.

Krissy and Charlie, thank you for coming out to the shoot. I am a better person for having spent an afternoon with you both. I'll be back with more in a couple of days!

What a handsome little guy! These are my favorite kinds of images. Great captures!

Krissy said...

Oh, Jennifer. I love these photos! I love them! They are so, utterly and in all ways Charlie.

Those are the expressions we see when he plays every day. It's so wonderful to have them frozen in time. They are so much better than the school pictures or other posed stuff.

I want to thank you so much for the incredible job you did with him at the shoot. I know that a lot of the time it can be more fun to shoot little girls. (The tutus are soooo irrisitable), but we never felt second-fiddle with you!

Thank you for giving my little guy so much of your time and making him so completely comfortable. He would have taken you home if he could have.

Your work was marvelous, and I'll be recommending you to anyone and everyone, whether or not they ask.

Thank you so much for such a great day!! These are just beautiful!

Oh Jen, these are amazing. Krissy is totally going to love these (oh wait, she already does!!). Amazing. I have some supersweet ones of this little guy too.

(as an aside, I'll be in touch with all of you, I should get my ducks in a row about all this stuff).

SOOOOO happy to see you posting stuff.

(and yeah, little girls in tutus are fun but boys with awesome clothes & attitude rawk!)
