Introducing: Our Littlest Hero

Isaiah is now one of the newest Littlest Heroes thanks to one of the Greatest Photographers.

James' training spilled over into our weekend, so the kids and I met Trina Gueck Saturday at Point Defiance Park for Isaiah's Littlest Heroes Project photo shoot. I instantly knew we had made the right choice. Isaiah took to her right away. Trina's calm and patient demeanor paved the way to easy smiles and natural poses. Even when a re-enactment of the 2008 Christmas card shoot took place in front of a huge fir tree, Trina laughed with us and like a true professional, kept the camera clicking.

As part of the project, Trina will be sending us a CD with all of the pictures she took. I can hardly wait to see them all! In the meantime, she has posted a Sneak Peek on her photography blog:

We are thoroughly delighted with our experience with Trina. And to top it off, she made us feel like she was grateful for our chosing her.

Thank you for sharing your gift with us, Trina! You are amazing!

Holy cow, Sharon, those are AMAZING! Isaiah looks so proud and happy to be king for the day. That last shot brought tears to my eyes. PERFECT picture for James's desk in his new DC office!

Oh my..... The last shot made me a little teary too - I LOVE it! What a treasure these photos will be for you and your family.

A huge belated Happy Birthday to Isaiah! It's hard to believe that he and my Silje are 5 years old this month!

Sharon, those are just amazing! I love, love, love the last one! I can't wait to see them all.

Sharon said...

Thanks, ladies! What I love about the pictures is that they are totally *Isaiah*. I know I talk about him a lot, but these pictures express who he truly is. I wasn't sure if I was ready to let the world in, but I am so glad we did this.

Mandie, He is an amazing little boy. There are 2 pictures where he appears to be smiling at angels. Absolutely incredible shots of him.
