As promised, here's the last of the three portrait sessions I did with the Banks family. This one was with their son Matthew and was actually shot before the family session. But, they asked for the family photos first, so I processed & delivered them earlier.
All of the sessions were done at Lake Ridge Park here in Lake Ridge, Virginia. We had some great late-afternoon light with Matthew.
First, we went down by the water and did some cool stuff mixing the beautiful background ambient light with a little flash. These first two shots are from there:
Then, we decided to bounce off some trees for a while. We must've done 30 or 40 of these as Matthew perfected his jump:
Lastly, we went back by some big rocks & a stream. You can't see the rocks or stream, but we got the best smile of the day there:
