Awhile back I had a quick mini-session with Kim, Doug, and mischievous little Ramsey in the little green space between the North End and the Boston’s financial district. Kim’s a fellow photographer, and we started off four years ago together trying to figure out what the heck to do with a speedlight.
Whenever I am trying to relax a kid and lose the cheese factor, I ask everyone to make a “very serious face.” Ramsey’s reactions to Kim and Doug are hilarious, to say the least. As you can see from the last photo, that little technique works like a charm almost every time.
I like this one best of the group shots, because it’s the perfect moment of Ramseyness. Let’s face it, the girl, like most her age, is a bit random. She alternates between playing shy and playing stage manager when someone new is around. I love the randomness of kids. They are always my favorite shots.
What a pleasure it is to photograph for friends.

(HIGHLIGHTS: crazy fisheye shot up into the sky, Doug’s faces,
and Ramsey’s little squishy smiley face when they lifted her up in the air.
Also, look at the way she looks at her daddy.)
