In case you're not a Robert McCloskey fan (the author of the classic "Make Way For Ducklings" book), those are (I think) the names of the ducklings. I did it from memory, because I'm too lazy to walk the seven steps to my daughter's bookcase and confirm it. But I think it's something like that.
I met these guys in the Boston Public Garden last weekend for their pictures - they'd gotten a gift certificate for a shoot a while back, and they'd been patiently waiting on my waiting list for weeks and weeks. Finally they nabbed an open spot, and we lucked out with the weather.
I had to post this picture first, even though we took it at the end of the session. Mom mentioned as we were packing up to leave that they had one of those classic Make Way for Ducklings frames, and wouldn't it be so great to get a picture of their Jack sitting on top of this duckling Jack? Big boy Jack wasn't so sure about that plan, but I actually prefer this one anyway, with him checking things out in the background with his dad :)
And this is my #1, hands-down, no question favorite from the session. Best smiles ever. Love how his hair matches his mom's hair.
Isn't he a handsome dude?
Oh yeah. Forgot this one. Love this one too.
Look at those CHEEKS!
This one is perfect because all Jack wanted to do during the shoot was walk around. He'd just gotten his feet under him, and he was loving wandering all over the gardens. And what better to walk to than a ball from mom?
The weeping willows make such a great background here. Leaf in hand - what's more fall-like?
Wonderful to get a chance to meet you, I'm glad we got you in there!
One more. Love this pout!
