Olga and Yura are such a loving and sweet couple. I was lucky to meet and photograph them at the beautiful El Matador beach in Malibu. I arrived 40 minutes before the photo session to observe the location. It was very crowded with vacationers and photographers. After checking the light and planning the session five minutes before Olga and Yura came, I simply sat on a sand with my eyes closed and meditated. I really wanted this crowd to disappear so I could be able to use every beautiful spots of this beach. It did not actually happen, but it happened in my mind. The crowds do not bother me anymore and we had a wonderful session that was full of ideas and excitement.
That day, it was her brother's photo session. He just turned 7. Emka's Mom asked me to take only a couple photos of Emka in her white summer dress.. It was actually a challenge for me to stop shooting this beautiful little lady and, of course, I ended up with more than just a couple pictures.
I love to take pictures of children in action, when they are doing something they like. Powerful children portraits are different than “look at the camera and smile” pictures. A true portrait reflects child's personality, energy and uniqueness .This soccer photo session in the Central Park was successful and unique moments of Tyler playing soccer were captured.
Thank you: Slavka for the idea, Tyler for cooperation and Emka for a patience.
