Cooper unleashes his inner superhero for his birthday portrait session
Cooper has one of the strongest personalities of any kid that I know. Like most young boys he's a ball of constant energy bursting at the seams. So, when it's time for his birthday photo session each year I know I can expect lots of great expressions and emotions. I always try to just let Cooper be himself and I know that the his portraits will turn out fantastic. I don't try to make him pose picture-perfect. My goal is so that years from now his family will remember his outgoing personality and his many interests, not what pose was popular on Pinterest at the time.
When I arrived at Cooper's New Market, MN home he was already excited to show off his new bike to me. He was donning a Batman costume from play earlier in the day. I think his parents may have been hoping for something a little more formal, but I encouraged him to keep it on for at least a few moments. What kid doesn't want to tear around the yard dressed as a superhero anyway, right? He even stopped for a few snuggles with his new puppy, because superheroes need love, too!
You don't have to wait to be a high school senior to show off what makes you - you, especially when doing an at-home photography session. Cooper wanted to show off his climbing skills on his backyard jungle gym: check! He's big into Pokemon cards: Let's see the collection, I say. I think all of these elements are a lot more meaningful, and mom and dad still were able to get their little man to loose the Batman costume for some more traditional photos as well :)
So what makes your kids tick? I'd love the opportunity to showcase what makes them so unique, too. Please contact me today to schedule your own at-home photography session. You'll be amazed how kids can light up when they get to celebrate who they are! 612-419-7009 dan (at) theanthologie.com #kiddosunplugged #littleadventures #anthologie
