At my regular gig at Overton Park, we have a membership program where one of the perks to a 1971 Membership is a photo session in the park with me. We’re a pretty young little nonprofit (we turned two last month), so we’re working our way up to those larger donations. To kick off the program, we did a little shoot in the formal gardens with the four children of one of our board members. And they were DELIGHTFUL.
Perhaps it’s because my own memories of childhood photo shoots involve a lot of scratching, clawing, eye-rolling, and general strife. (And that was just two of us!) But these four just genuinely enjoy each other, and appreciate each others’ quirks. They were so loving and so happy to be around each other. (Check out the Classic Little Brother moment midway through, when Cameron spontaneously licks a tree and Meriweather responds with a horrified glee.) Even the dog was a breeze to work with.
I hope to do many more of these Overton Park shoots in the future!
