While we were spending time with Anton's family for his father's funeral, his mom expressed the desire to have some updated photos of Anton's brother Jakob. He lives in New Zealand and had come up for the funeral. So while he was here I kindly volunteered my camera and my shutter-clicking finger. We managed to get outside right as the sun was setting and had some great picture-taking light. I snapped all sorts of mediocre pictures and managed to end up with 3 pretty good ones. That's my method of getting good photos: the more you take the better odds you have of getting a good one.
It's hard to decide which of these is my favorite.
I like the casual attitude here. This is entirely Jakob.
His mom really wanted a head shot, so I obliged.
See the huge gauges in his ears? I wonder what those will look like when he's 50 years old?
And though I like those other two, I really think this next is my absolute favorite:
The background is delish! And the red at the top is the actual color of the wood, not the sunset. Love it! We printed them out and framed one and gave them to Anton's mom for her birthday on Saturday. We also gave Anton's other brother Kyle and his family a photo shoot for Christmas, so eventually I'll get to take pictures of them too. Such fun!
