He took me to Narnia… ~{Miami Child Photographer}~

I love it when my clients bring  special items with them to our sessions. This smart mom remembered to pack one of her son’s most prized possessions – a large volume of Narnia stories. He was so excited to talk about the book and tell me all about the characters – I learned about Corin, Cor, Aravis and more. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well you’ve got two options – either grab a book, or a willing 8-year old boy, and find out!

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not usually the type to love the fantasy genre. The first “Lord of the Rings” movie nearly killed me, people – it was easily fifty-eleven hours long! But this little boy’s love for all things “Narnia” was so endearing, that I couldn’t help but enjoy hearing him talk about it.  His enthusiasm was infectious, and his thoughtfulness in answering my questions was so sincere that I loved the stories, too, by the time we ended the session.

Here he is taking his Narnia stuff very seriously.

We took a Narnia break and explored some cool coral rocks at the park – what little boy doesn’t like rock climbing? None I know! Anyone around us at the time probably got a huge laugh watching my very-pregnant self try to keep up with this child as he traversed those rocks. But that’s okay – anything for the shot!

His smile is contagious – I loved his laugh! He was such a fan of my arsenal of extremely silly jokes. What can I say, the kid has taste!

When I spoke to this mom over the phone before our session, she warned me that she’s “not that photogenic.” Ummm…is she she crazy, or what? She’s completely and totally beautiful.

Those eyes. I don’t need to say more…

J family, meeting you was such a pleasure! I hope you enjoyed both the session and the images as much as I loved creating them for you.
