You all have met my sweet friend, A.J before on my blog. There isn't much more I can say about this incredible kid that I haven't already said! You can check out his previous sessions here and here -just to see how much he's grown!
It is truly an honor that I'm basically this child's sole photographer (with the exception of the stuffy school year book picture). I hate to say it, but I really don't know HOW I'm going to take a better picture of this "dude". Our session last Saturday was almost flawless (well....as flawless as it can be with a six year old)
I hope that when A.J and his family look back on these pictures in 10 years, 20 years, 50 years... they see a sweet boy who is highly intelligent and intuitive. A boy who is kind, yet a little fearless. A boy who is just too cool to crack a smile. But, most importantly I hope they see a boy who genuinely loves life!
At this very moment in time, this is who A.J is and this is what he's about. I'm so pleased to have these moments forever frozen in time!
Poor A.J! He was given very strict instructions not to move his feet or roll his board from side to side. But! He did what I need him to do!
Flannel shirts were IN, Clinton was running for president, and Eddie Vedder was a commercial sellout!
As always, leave some love for A.J and his parents in the comment section below! Also, I'd love to hear which image is your favorite!
Have a great weekend, friends!
