Smile for the birdie. It’s a phrase I’ve heard photographers use with kids when they are taking their pictures. I have no idea the meaning behind it! But I definitely understand why Cole would want to smile for the birdie. He’s a golfer and if he’s gotten a birdie on a hole then he has made an amazing shot!
I met Cole up in Suncadia for his senior pictures because he is a huge golfer and has had a lot of fun times up in Suncadia. Love that it is close enough to go up just for the evening! I’ve never photographed a golfer before so Cole and I had a fun time coming up with different creative ideas. I LOVE it when my clients get creative with me!
Here are my favorites…
And of course I photographed his awesome family too! Peggy and I first met back when Cole was just in first grade (And Sammy was 2!). I’m so honored they picked me to capture these memories for them!
