Amazing Children's Photographer! – My son is almost two, and if you are looking for a difficult subject to photograph - he is definitely up there! In fact, I searched a while before choosing Loic because I knew that photographing kids (especially this age) is not an easy task, and it takes a expert! I went with Loic because I heard great recommendations from various sources - my mom's club, on Yelp, and through a friend that had wanted to hire him for her wedding (but he was booked).
Before we met, Loic had great suggestions on where we should photograph our son, clothing colors that would work best, and a time of day to meet for the lighting. Since this is typically such a difficult age to photograph, Loic suggested that we meet in a park as opposed to his studio, predicting that our son wouldn't want to sit still in a studio environment. I chose a neighborhood park that our son was familiar with.
Typical of his behavior, during the shoot our son was almost nonstop movement around the park. Nevertheless, Loic managed to capture so many shots of our son looking happy and angelic and even smiling for the camera! Loic was easygoing and conversational, and had a great way with our son too - making funny sounds so that he would look at the camera, and showing him the digital shots on his camera as well. In fact, our son liked him so much that towards the end of our visit he had Loic kiss his special Pooh-bear friend!
