In my aspirations to make portrait photography my main goal and since my New Years Eve plans fell apart, I did a small set for a family friends kids yesterday afternoon.

I LOVE shooting kids...their such a pain in the butt to work with as they fidget around, cant hold still for more than a few seconds and will never smile when you want them too...but thats part of what makes it great because they dont hold a position like a robot and no two photos are anywhere near alike...some just come out terrible but some come out GREAT! Ive got about a billion more to process but heres a quick few so far...

I think this is my favorite of the bunch...she is only 5 years old but has the attitude of of a 15 year old! The background(an off white stucco wall), i think give an interesting texture to it instead of the plain smooth ones normally seen and along with dramatic lighting, i think it gives a nice feel to it.

My Dear Jeffro,

Great pics! You have obviously interiorized the lessons from the lighting DVD you wrote about earlier. These are all very handsome inages.

Appreciate the comments Pineneedle!

These kids flat wore me out! I chased them around the yard for nearly 3 hours, rolling around on the ground, setting this up, trying that...my legs, neck, back and arms are DONE! :P Dont ever let anyone tell you this is a no\low impact profession!
