Impressive portrait of Josh,
by the incredibly talented Mister Brock Elbank.
I knew his work before.
Familiar from the impressive BEARD-series,
which is not something the boys are ready for yet,
First of all this cool dude.
The photographer’s wife spotted this boy
and he thanked her for that on IG.
Totally understand that!
The most important ingredient to make it just a good
or an incredibly brilliant portrait is the right model.
Not just beautiful, but more likely one-of-a-kind.
His beautiful wreckles,
combined with his stunning curls and colour of his hair.
Never saw this before.
But then, the magic of the photographer…
the light, the background, the way the model poses.
In this portrait,
all has so many gorgeous tones in colour.
And his face is so strong,
his eyes have such a beautiful colour.
His torso is toned.
He could be a surfer, a football-player,
or just a boy his age.
It really doesn’t matter.
He has the grace of a contemporary Royal.
He looks so proud,
without any arrogance.
Just very very strong!

From the series Father & Son 2014,
a portrait of Arvi,
by Finnish photographer and artist
It’s so brilliant in pureness. His glance… is it dreamy?
What did this boy thought at the moment of this photoshoot?
We will never find out and it doesn’t really matter,
but it makes that great way of looking…
His blue eyes which has a great color-reference with the t-shirt.
Is the tee dad’s, like the beautiful woolen coat?
Questions popping into our minds.
All with the beautiful light it makes such an interesting pure portrait.
The colors makes it masculine, but it is also fragile and soft.
The proportions. The little boy with the big coat… Absolutely amazing!
This portrait keeps you busy. That’s why we think it’s brilliant!

This brilliant portrait of Alwin
is created by the Berlin-based HENRIETTE BANDULIK
(what a talent!)
for the always inspiring La Petite Mag.
It looks so minimalistic and therefore simple, but it’s not!
Brilliant in every way!
With a lot of attention in every detail
from the whole creative team.
First of all the model Alwin,
his gorgeous color of hair,
the hair-do, the wreckles (we looovvveeee that!).
The tone of his skin…
The crystal clear white shirt,
the flowers in his pocket (LOVE!),
beautiful thoughtful colors.
The way he is posing. The way he looks.
What is he thinking?
Vulnerable and yet strong!
And then the creative team… you’ve nailed it!
It’s the combination of a team
which makes their work just good or absolutely brilliant.
It’s a portrait, but it feels like a STILL.
Beauty and silence in one. It deserves to be in an art gallery.
Have a wonderful weekend y’all!
p.s. This image is one of a series not published yet.
We’re so curious! Soon the new issue of La Petite Mag!
With more hours of sun coming our way,
we’re very much focussed on images outside!
This gorgeous image is one of our favorites, obviously.
Because it makes you look a little bit longer.
Not an image gone in a flash, without any attention.
You just want to take time to take a closer look.
This image is from a series for Papier Mache Magazine,
photographed by the talented Melanie Rodriguez.
Working with a wonderful team,
Charlotte Huguet and Studio Aout,
gets this amazing result!
It’s a profession people!
We love her work, because it’s a bit dreamy,
but yet very contemporary.
We have a big preference
for down-sized colors in photography…
Not too intense, color wise.
Favorite for a reason…
Check all her other beautiful cool work here.
And here’s some extra from this series which we really love.
Check PAPIER MACHE too, owwww what a COOL MAG!
HAVE A WONDERFUL SUNNY WEEKEND Y’ALL!

This gorgeous image is from
Swedish photographer Karolina Henke.
She made this one for inspiring La Petite Mag.
Her images are always like a contemporary fairytale.
Very strong! It seems to be that’s her specialty.
Her unique ability to direct her models
into strong personal expressions.
WE WANT MORE!

… take a closer look…
[ black & white photography ]
The London based photographer
to whom we will give a compliment,
almost every (two) week (s) on IG… haha!
But never had the chance to meet her in real life…
Big laugh about it, when we finally did meet.
Conclusion after this meet & greet;
Very talented photographer, very stylish miss and lovely to talk to.
An inspiring lady. More to come…
For now we would like you to take a closer look
at #brilliance no.3!
Little cool details makes it big!
Her work is the example of that.
Very fashion, street style
and very minimalistic.
It’s about the face, the personality…
This portrait of model Conor for Named Models,
to us, gives innocence, silence
and yet an incredibly strong personality in one image.
Being very cool in his NIKE sweater… (we looovvveee)
As both contemporary and timeless, as it can be.
Have a wonderful lovely weekend y’all!

Only 24hrs left,
to get the opportunity of a lifetime…
A PHOTOSESSION ,
WITH THIS 5 year old MASTER …
And on top of that
some delicicious ICECREAM
( love it!!!!, it must be his idea )
all in wonderful SEATTLE
there’s a quite celebrated talented National Geographic photographer,
who will take his 4 year old son on a roadtrip through the desert to enjoy
a father & son get-together…
But it happened to be a lifechanging experience…
The dad, Aaron Huey,
was looking for something to do for fun,
Something they would both enjoy…
Along the way
they’ve bought 4 year old Hawkeye
an instant Fuji camera.
Well glad they did…
We looovvveeeeee it!!!!!
Little Hawkeye stole our heart.
As a photographer and mom of a 4 year old myself,
I would dream about something like this to happen.
BOY OH BOY…
Analog will always bring something surprising,
something we can’t control.
The angle from where he photographs the subject is so refreshing!
So natural and logical, but yet never ever done like this before.
Well, the rest is history.
There will almost be
HIS FIRST PHOTOBOOK
and you can help!
THE COOLEST KICKSTARTER PROJECT EVERRR!
Just 24 hrs left to support this project!
But we know for sure, this is the start of a wonderful career of a cool boy.
Not only because of his amazing photography,
but for for sure of being a cool, nice, intelligent, lovely boy.
Thanks to his lovely cool parents! You rock!
LION OF LEISURE…,
the cool kidsbrand from Antwerp,
asked us again to do their photoshoot…
This time for the BABY-collection.
We loooooooooveddddddddd it!
You have to know, we’re always in the middle of
3 and 11 year old dudes.
And to be honest,
with cute little babies
we always become incredibly soft.
Yelling…. “ssssssooooo cuteeeeeee”…
“too adorable”… and
(I couldn’t found a similar translation for
our Dutch sentence:) “om op te eten”.
These adorable little tiny mini’s were shining
in front of my camera, doing a wonderful job.
They are only 8, 15 and 18 months old.
Can you believe it? Little heroes!
This collection is considered non-seasonal. Which we love!
A few times a year Lion of Leisure comes up
with a new print and an additional humorous text.
Every tee is handprinted carefully and lovingly.
At the shoot we saw a few
new very cool illustrations already.
We assume they will present that
at Playtime Paris at the end of this month.
Their baby collection is in soft grey,
soft blue, beautiful red and off-white.
Always with the cool , already well-known,
detailed, whimsical illustrations of animals.
With funny graphics like: “wait for me” (elephant),
“today could be a bit wobbly” (giraffe),
“show me the milk” (lamb),
“I can fly” (pinguin), “crack!” (Chimp).
The combination of image and text makes it hilarious.
In 3 sizes from 6-18 months.
Lion of Leisure is always delivering these
cool tees in the re-usable 100% pure cotton bag.
A lovely gift from the designers.
We think this is one of the must-haves-gifts
for birth or B-days ,
which will always
put a smile on someone’s face.
Check it out here,
But we will keep you posted anyway!
