a lion's gotta roar

Marion wanted to surprise her husband with pictures of their cute little son Leo for his birthday. So she asked me if I could take a couple of shots and I gladly said yes. When they came over I didn't quite know what to expect. Leo is a year old and I when I was shooting a kid his age the last time, the boy didn't like it at all and wanted to hide the whole time. So it took a lot of patience and creativity to make him feel comfortable and get a few nice shots. Leo was the opposite – he loved the camera, giggled and laughed along and I had to speed up to keep up with him, when he was exploring the room. All in all it was a fun shooting and I hope you can see this in the images as well. 

So, happy birthday to Patrick, Leo's daddy. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

This Christmas I had some friends over for dinner. I knew I would be busy in the kitchen at some point so I prepared a little surprise activity for them: I set up my camera and light in the entrance hall, prepared some fun props and set the camera to delayed action release so that everybody could snap some fun pictures of themselves. And they did. Everybody had lots of fun and the pictures are a nice souvenir to a great night.
