when denise first contacted me inquiring about taking some photos of her two children, martina and dylan, we talked a bit about the places they would like to take the photos. what places do they love to go? in talking with denise i discovered that she is what her friends call a “professional Disneyland guest.” since they love Disneyland as much as i do, i suggested that we take their photos there. denise couldn’t say yes fast enough. martina and dylan needed no convincing. the stage was set for a super fun photo session.
this shot is a re-creation of a moment shared between martina and her grandma that denise had captured years ago. on a side note, sadly, Mr. Lincoln isn’t in the opera house these days.
martina and dylan were such great models. they were A. adorable, B. up for all of my ideas, and C. always had a smile on. even with all the rides tempting them, they stuck with the plan & were two of the best young kids i’ve ever worked with.
martina and dylan were being as good as angels, but i could tell they were ready to crank up the fun a notch or two, so…
we made our way back to toontown where they could finally let loose a little. i love that part of the park. it’s so colorful and fun. you can’t help but feel like a kid once you’re in there.
peek a boo dylan!
i wasn’t kidding when i said martina was as good as an angel.
cue the angelic “aaaaahhhhh” sounds.
dylan was super cool. in fact, he was a little too cool. this was taken right before he crossed that velvet rope in the background which ,in turn, caused a cast member to yell “you can’t do that!” apparently, dylan’s been reading our blog. we don’t like velvet ropes either. :)
martina had a good laugh about her brother’s run-in with “the law.”
can you name them all?
thank you denise for inviting us to photograph your ohana at one of our favorite places. we had such a fun day. we absolutely love your kids, chicklets and all. :)
