Okay, I’m going to fess up right now and let you know that my favorite portrait subject is my gorgeous little nephew, Lukas. I think it’s safe to say that he’ll be the subject of most of my portrait posts. Anyway, he was splashing around in a pool one day a few years ago when I finally managed to get his attention and snapped this shot.
It’s become easier to photograph him as he’s gotten older and recognizes what a camera is; when he was this small, the camera wasn’t something that interested him and getting eye contact was sometimes challenging. Now that he’s six, it’s a whole different story!
