THE YOUNG FAMILY
Ta'Ron Young, a single father from Southern Maryland brought his two beautiful daughters and handsome son into our studio. The very moment the lights dimmed and the cameras flashed, it was immediately a party!
The girls were natural born stars! They moved about gracefully and free like two balls of energy. As I caught every precious moment on camera, I played with the children while telling a few goofy jokes as they burst into laughter.
I asked Ta'Ron to step in to get a few shots and his daughter's eyes lit up with excitement! They ran and hugged their father; showering him with love. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
Laina (white shirt) is 4 yrs old. She's eargerly awaiting her 5th birthday in July. She attends gymnastics and cheerleading and is highly proficient in both! Lyriq (pink shirt) is 3 yrs old and will be joining her big sister in gymnastics and cheerleading this fall. When i learned of their talents, I wasn't surprised at all!
Without even giving it a second thought, the girls worked together and helped eachother; embodying the innocent and pure meaning of "sisterly love."
Tay is the big brother and self-appointed protecter of these gorgeous little princesses. He is skilled in Tae Kwon Do martial arts. A natural artist, Tay likes to draw his own comic books! He tried to play "cool" but i got through his tough exterior with a little super hero/cartoon conversation!
As the photoshoot came to a close, we all forgot we were shooting. The studio was filled with so much life and laughter that I didn't feel like what I was doing was "work." If it is considered work, what Ta'Ron Young created within his children was a work of art.
