If I could pick one kid to photograph all the time -- other than my own beautiful daughter -- it would be this awesome kiddo. She's as nice as can be, as professional as anyone can ask and, yeah, she's beautiful in such a natural way. Except a little color correction and removing a stray beachcomber in the background, these pictures fell pretty much directly from the camera. (We photographers love that!)
If you are a casting or creative director and would like to work with her, please ring the bell of Christian or Marissa at Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited.
Hair and makeup done her mom, the amazing Karina Talaro, who also does MUAH for all my editorial sessions. Wardrobe styled by Claire Verity.
Technical Stuff: All these shots were done on the beach in Seaside, OR, on a really sunny day using a Canon 5D MKIII, a 70-200mm f2.8 lens and a lot of reflectors. The next to last image (of her splashing in the water) has some color enhancement done to the water but otherwise these images are pretty much straight from the camera except for a little color correction.
