Ryan and Amanda: Childrens Photography

Oh man! It's been a while since I've put up a post, but I finally got around to this awesome session with Ryan and Amanda. These kids are balls of energy to say the least. Their mother Liana kept asking me if I wanted children after photographing them because they seriously pooped me out from all the running and chasing. Well, Liana, to answer your question, after seeing how happy these two make you and how much they make you laugh I definitely am not afraid of having a few of my own one day.

The best part about photographing these kids was watching Amanda shadow her older brother in everything he did and laugh at every funny face he made or every dance he busted out. And let me tell ya, he busted a move, like, every few minutes! I'm calling it now - Ryan is going to be either a comedian or some kind of entertainer, and Amanda is going to be his number 1 fan. These two have such a nurturing brother-sister relationship fostered by parents who treasure them so much and smother them with kisses and hugs every time they get a chance.

Let's start off with my favorite of the day. Their faces make me smile. :-D

We asked Ryan to hold Amanda's hand, and he happily obliged. :-) What a great big brother.

Amanda thinks she's really funny; Ryan obviously doesn't agree here.
