Detail on Joshua... My clients had originally wanted Joshua's hands down in front.... like the rest of the kids on the ground. I had a very hard time finding another photo, this angle with a good expression to get his face shape just right... in fact I could not find one! Not to mention I really found it much more interesting to have his hands up... I like the way it frames Joshua's face and it makes the portrait as a whole more fun. Luckily I convinced them too!
