Noah and his parents go to our church. I usually shoot his special occasions like birthdays, and holiday pictures. We finally got around to doing his 4 yr old portraits today, and he was quite a handfull (my best shots were between him overacting and making huge grins and closing his eyes). It may be a few years before he settles back down again, but anyway, here is a sample of what I did today.

BTW, it is not recommended to give a 4 yr old Cheez-its during mid-shoot snacktime. Photoshopping Cheez-its out of a 4 yr olds grill isn't that much fun.

I shot these with the D200 and 105mm VR.

Man....I can just imagine what a handful he must have been. I shot Christmas photo's of some children back in November and I had that same problem with the mid-shoot snack. The keepers were from later in the session and by that time the littlest one was covered in goldfish crumbs. another learning experience.:smile:

These are very good though. #'s 1 and 4 are excellent and ought to make the family very happy. What a handsome young man too!

That's a 4 year old!!

I know what you mean 4 year olds can be a challenge but you have done a great job!! We sometimes forget that they have a short attention span and we have to get into their world wherever that might be.:biggrin: What lighting were you using?

Sarah, I used two sb600 in umbrellas and a third sb600 as a hairlight for the studio shots. Outdoors, I just used the sb800 on the camera for fill.

love the first one, it reminds me of a painting.
Thanks, Laura.

Very nice Joshua. I'm sure his parents are way happy with these.
Thanks Fred. I am reasonably happy with them...I'm sure his parents will love them though. I feel like my exposures are good, and technically they are fine, but they aren't all that interesting to look at.
