This is my girlfriend's son, Dylan. He was so cute during this shoot because he loves attention so much. We were on a cruise when this challenge was announced, and had the idea to put him at a closed roulette table. Fortunately, Dylan did better in the casino than I did.

For those who might have a problem with him holding the cigar: He asked what the cigar was and what it was for -so I dont need to go patrol his playground after all. We told him it was an adult thing, like beer.

Post: thanks for all your comments. This is my personal best, so I am happy. This was a fun shoot to do; Dylan loves being the center of attention, so he loved me taking photos of him for this shoot.

One of my favorites from the challenge. The boy's expression is priceless - he looks so world-weary. Nicely photographed as well.

Love this. So hilarious. I think it would have been good to see some chips scattered about too. What a great little actor you have there :D

One of the only imaginative shots in the bunch that was also well done. Really like it alot. I will admit I paused a minute to see if the message bothered me. A kid gambling and smoking? Hmm. I'm really not that uptight.
