10 of 365: twilight... babe style

Newer Older

Day 10 of 365 babe-a-lorful photos!
Chloé has not really been the best sport when it has come to this project. Taking these photos with her has been trying to say the least.

Part of it is my fault. I’m telling her to do things, act natural, but make this face, just be yourself, run, walk, sit, stare, funny, happy, throw your arms out, just be a kid, twirl around, no, yes, no, yes.

Poor fucking kid. She wasn’t feeling it most of these days. Complaining and whining about it mostly. But when asked about it later, she the idea of it in theory.

So I told her the other day after shooting her day 9 photo that if she doesn’t have a better attitude about it, we’ll just stop. No hard feelings. But I don’t need to parade around with whimpering kid every damn night asking if “are we done yet?” just to get a good picture out.

Maybe this was the wrong medium to showcase my cool kid?

Well if so, you couldn’t tell by this photo. I think it’s badass and one of my favorites ever. As a matter of fact I don’t think I’ve ever been able to produce a photo like this before.

We found this bench and the sun had just gone done. The good lighting you see was coming from field lights of the soccer game being played next to us. It provided an almost strobe-like effect for the lighting on my little rockstar.

And her attitude? Pretty good this time. I even gave her a little prize. But I don’t know if we’re going to be able to do this everyday.

    I was so excited when I saw this picture I did a back flip. However, I was in a sleeping bag...so it got really weird. My cat looked at me as though he no longer accepted me as his owner. Then I realized I had no cat, and wondered why this creature was in my home!

    See, your photo has set off a chain of events that not even Ashton Kutcher could fix!

    I LOVE her honesty!! This is a gorgeous shot, the location is so rad! I promise you that you are so blessed that she will roll with you on this, I almost have to bribe my kiddo to even point my camera in his direction lol

    It's a great moment you've captured., the carefree expression. These unposed, natural shots are my favorite.

    Your description is so funny :D She's such a typical kid. That's so awesome. Some little girls grow up too fast and want to emulate celebrities so would be all over this photo shoot thing. I am happy to hear that Chloe seems to just want to be herself. Take pride!
    This shot really seems to grasp her individuality. Nicely done!

    What a kid she is, I wish I knew you both.
    Do it when shes up for it, I love it when I ask my two if they want to be in my picture and they love that, but only when they want to.

    Shes a sweetheart, but then you know that.

    D'you know . . . I also think this is one of your best photos. Everything about it is just right. The twinkling lights in the background, the floodlights-as-strobes, Chloe sitting perfectly symmetrically posed - perfect.
