Fotomission’s The Waiting 2009 (part 2) • miami photography editorial

A few weeks back I posted about The Waiting 2009, a photography exhibition of kids in the foster care system hoping to be adopted (click here to read that post). I had yet to photograph two more kids and mentioned I would post those once ready. I got to photograph Maurice and Susana in the studio. Maurice wants to be an Architect and Susana, who is about to start her Senior year, wants to be a Nurse. This is the third time I photograph Susana who is just blossoming beautifully. They were both very sweet, quiet and courteous.

The exhibition will be sometime in November. I will announce that date and time soon. Thanks.

venue Magazine – Catimini • Editorial Commercial Photographer Miami

The July/August issue of Venue Magazine, a high-end lifestyle magazine for Latinos living in the United States, is featuring a 6-page editorial spread highlighting the children’s clothing line Catimini and featuring images I created specially for this project. By looking at these photos you might think these kids are professional models, but they aren’t! They are regular “civilians” like you and me, but they did fantastically well. The 2-hour beach shoot went smoothly even with strong winds. I love editorial and commercial photography, so I welcome more of these projects. Can’t wait to do it again.

Fotomission’s the waiting 2009 • miami portrait photographer

Fotomission’s The Waiting 2009 is under way. It is a yearly photography exhibition of children awaiting adoption. Most of these cases are of local children long forgotten in the foster care system who are still hoping to be adopted but whose age makes them the least likely candidates for most families. On its 6th year, The Waiting continues to strive to bring light to this issue and once again I’m honored to be a part of this very real issue in our South Florida community.

I photographed these brothers last Friday in the studio. I wanted very moody intimate portraits of them that would show their sweetness and a little bit of their personalities. Denzel (12) and Deion (14) were just like any other pair of brothers you could come across. They played and laughed, a lot, and followed directions perfectly. I could not have asked for more. I will be photographing two more kids in the next couple of weeks and will post those soon.

This is Denzel…

Thank you all. I’ll keep you posted for the opening.
