i’d been waiting for this. a few years ago i photographed adrian’s first communion, along with his friend aser. he’s a fun little guy, now not so little anymore, but i was really taken by his little brother hugo. i knew that in three years time i would be photographing him for his very own first communion, so i can honestly say i was excited about this session. this fun little guy kept going on and on about how he wanted to take all these instagram-worthy photos, telling me what would be great to capture in the background and what would be a fun pose for him. now, if this came from an adult it could have been annoying… but from an eight year old???! he kept me laughing and clicking the shutter. i also have to say i really love how goofy this family can be, not afraid to be silly or laugh at themselves. my kind of people! i just wish there were more of them!
it was covered in snow. the first time i saw victor he was covered in snow, having a snowball fight with his family, and rolling around the ground. it was during our family session a few years ago. one of the most fun sessions i’ve ever done, in part because it never snows here, and in big part because this happy family is just such a thrill to work for. they’re just nice, good, happy people. the next time i saw him he was also covered in white, but it was due to his sailor suit for his first communion… and pretty sure his mother wouldn’t have been so happy if he’d decided to roll on the ground then. snow or no snow, still just as easy to work with, and i’m still thrilled for the results. i can’t wait for his little brother to have his first communion because with his enormous personality i know we will manage to do something wild and really fun. see you soon boys!
they looked so grown up and so small at the same time. adrián and good friend aser put on their suit and rocked it out in front of the camera. mini-studs. it was a few weeks before their first communion and their mom’s, aitziber and monika, decided to go the non-traditional route and forget about the photo studio for their first communion portraits. instead we went out on a warm spring day and had fun with spontaneous races, trying not to fall into the water, and seeing who could jump the highest off a huge rock. of course, we also had time for some fun family portraits. these two were dreading having their pictures taken at first, but as you can see… they got over it pretty quickly! 😉
