This is my son. He told me he wanted to model his new cowboy hat, so I obliged and set up a popup backdrop, grabbed an SB28 and a shoot through umbrella and gave him a bit of a photo shoot. My mom and my wife's mom got framed and matted 8x10's to hang in their house. And I got this wonderful smile from him for doing this for him. Thanks for the votes and the two favorites.

I gotta tell you Matt, you have one great boy there. You as usual have done a great job with the shot but its the spirit in him that I see that makes this shot for me.

Hadn't seen this one before, Matt - absolutely awesome! Canvas would do this some justice as well. :)

Great shot! I think the crop is excellent and the model communicates with the viewer. Well done.

He looks so good, Matt. Wow does he have some beautiful eyelashes. And that smiling thru his eyes - awesome.

Tight framing and tighter lighting. Not your run of the mill kid portrait. This one packs a punch.

Looks like he is trying to hold in a laugh - great expression!
