These guys are a whirlwind of energy. I don’t know if I’ve ever met a more multi-talented and high flying group of kids!
Their mom asked us to get some shots of the kids, with a few family ones thrown in. Sounds good to me! I love just shooting kids being kids. And the bonus was that three of these four are quite talented at gymnastics, and the fourth loves to follow them around!
It’s almost a bit sad to see how incredible kids are when it comes to being active. They completely wore us out, and were still going strong! Jumping, handstands, cartwheels, back-walkovers, the splits; so many things I wish I could do, and would literally break something if I tried. There’s so much to learn from kids, isn’t there?
A really neat part of this experience was during the ordering session. Hallie, the oldest girl, came along. Her mom had narrowed it down to three portraits of her, and asked her to choose which one she wanted to go on her wall. I held my breath, because I had a favourite that I really wanted her to pick. And without hesitation, she named it, “The Splits”. That was really awesome to see, as that image was, by far, one of our favourite portraits of a kid we’ve ever created. I’m so pumped that she’s going to have that up on her wall, I suspect her friends will be quite impressed!
Thanks so much, Lyons Family, for a wonderful, laughter-filled evening. If I ever manage to successfully complete a cartwheel without injuring myself, I’ll credit you guys with the inspiration :)
