Process shots by the lovely Joy Liu. I really had fun painting these (hence the experimentation in color) and they are special because these two beautiful babies have some pretty amazing parents, one of which was the doula for me and my sons mom when my little lion was born. Its hard to believe its been almost 9 years! Stella (7 yrs old?) is the older sibling , while Solomon (5 yrs) is the younger one. They come from “Island people” as their momma told me, Jamaican, Sicilian, and Irish i believe. If you would like a portrait, go here.
If you would like one of these posters about Racial Justice, hit me up and i’ll send you one. If you’re in the Bay I can drop it off to you, if farther away, hit me with an address please.
This little one is “Cuautemoc” a big name for a beautiful pair of eyes.
This one was pretty easy seeing as his mama is such a great photographer. Hey and if you need family photos of your teens, your newborn, or your entire clan holler at Ashley Flores Machado because she got them joints on lock, seriously.
This is such a cute little boy, his eyes are captivating and i love the curly hair. Temo! This one doesn’t show the hair off as much, but i liked the pose the most. He is two years old I think and is of Mexican decent I believe. Can’t wait to meet him.
For those of you still getting hip to the hop, I’m doing a series of portraits of children from all ages and backgrounds. And yes you can have one with more than one child. Holler.
