Summer Portraits for the Bush Kids

by dav.d

Sometimes you kill several birds with one stone. It isn’t very nice, but it is effective. I showed up to photograph Maren for her budding high school acting career. She would love to be an actor and they always need fresh headshots. Levi also needed his 3-year old portrait in black and white… all the Bush kids have one. And since I bought some new lighting gear, I wanted to try it out and see how well it works in new and different situations.

Eve was busy playing the yard and was a bit miffed that I asked to take her portrait. I spent a few minutes trying to get her hair to look more kempt, but we would need more time and she was getting impatient. It’s still a fun photograph and the messy hair shows how much fun she was missing by getting photographed.

And I also was able to borrow Julianne for a practice photograph as well. It was quick and easy and she could then go have fun with Eve. Good kids.

And here is Levi’s portrait. I have photographed 4 of the 5 Bush kids in black and white at the age of 3. The first kid, Maren, had her photograph on a cruise and that started the tradition, but I wasn’t doing much in photography at the time.
