I photographed Adam at Moss Point in Laguna Beach. A super nice 6 year old boy, who preferred to look “cool” versus “cute”. (Still think he looks cute in many of the pictures, but don’t tell him that :-))
Some kids are like that, and since I shoot “lifestyle”, I don’t want to force anything upon a child that he/she doesn’t feel comfortable with. At times Adam wanted to (tried to) look so cool and serious, that we both would start laughing (hence the smiling shots!).
