It is such a feast for the photographer when a child sees a photo session not only as a cool event (which it is!) but also as a means of self-expression. That is essentially an artistic approach, and it doubles the fun on the both sides of the lens!
Matteo with his nonchalant expressive character was always a joy to photograph – especially when he did not drive away full speed in one of his pedal sports cars. This time he was more than willing to take his time and stand in the spotlight. We played with “tough” expressions, and Matteo offered me his amazing mafioso-look.
How do you make a photo shoot more fun for a boy of any age? That’s right: involve a car in your session. It was easy for us to do: Matteo’s dad has an impressive BMW parked next to the house. Naturally, Matteo knew everything about this car and was happy to grab his chance to act like a driver. Look at these proud and enthusiast expressions! In the car, but also indoors and in the garden we created a wonderful mixture of portraits: the dramatic tough look and the cheerful imaginative character shining behind it.
Thank you, dear Matteo! Next time I will feature another model talent growing in this family: the youngest sister, Giulia.
