I have known Brecken's momma, Calli, for a few years now. We met while being tortured in a full-body workout that we love/hate. We bonded over the pain and suffering that we choose to do to ourselves. When she choose me to photograph her family, I was thrilled. Calli is sarcastic-funny, personable, fashionable, easy to talk with, well, she is just fun to be around. When I first photographed her and her family, she was in her 1st trimester of pregnancy and we did announcement photos and gender reveal photos. At that time Brecken was 2.5-3 years old and I was impressed at his ability to follow directions and while also letting his personality shine through.
I am going to step to the side for a moment here, forgive me. When we did Calli's maternity session, it rained. We did a few images in the rain with the intention of shooting more images at a later date. That never happened as her sweet baby boy came early (it may have even rained for their newborn session). Then we scheduled this session, the headshots, and it rained. We rescheduled for the following week. Guess what, thunderstorm. We rescheduled for 2 days later and guess what. Yep. thunderstorm. No joke. We were able to do most of the session before the rain hit though. There was a large threatening cloud coming closer and closer as the session went on. I think that maybe Calli and Brecken have to much electricity for the camera?
Ok, get back on track here Nanci....
So I am not the only one that recognized Brecken's modeling skills, he has been scouted for acting and modeling. He needed some headshots and I was thrilled to be the one to do them. I mean Brecken is a dream to work with. He listens well, he follows direction and he just gets 'it'. He is patient and even at the age of 4 he knows how to pose on his own. He is fun and personable like his momma. And I think he is going to love modeling and acting. Keep your eyes out for Mr. B!
Brecken, go forth and rock it! I know you will!
