skate rats {part one}.

10 kids.
14 skateboards.
old banana seat bike.
vintage 1970's style.
moonlight beach.

my good friend andrew reilly
asked me to pull together
some kids and looks for
his 1970's dog town style photo shoot.

i hand-picked the kids
they're not models, they're my kids' friends.
all of them skate and surf,
and are adorable, i might add.

the sun was finally out
and the kids were happy to skate
for hours and be photographed.

here are a few shots {of mine}
from yesterday's fun.

my husband.
after making sure the boys got in
an early morning surf session
before the photo shoot,
happily made calls
and enjoyed the sunshine.

my son, alex. andy shooting.

brendan, shannon
and my daughter, mikaela.

the whole crew.

andy working his magic,
backwards on a skateboard,
going downhill,
shooting 6 skate rats.

i'll post andy's shots soon.

you won't want to miss them.
