This session, submitted by Megan Small Photography, is the perfect example of how less can be more. You’re going to love this session based on a childhood book.
Get to know Megan:
My name is Megan Small and I am a Los Angeles based photographer specializing in pregnancy, newborns, families and weddings. I have always been infatuated with the art of documenting everyday life. Through high school and college I carried around a camera capturing every party, gathering of friends, or just a regular day at school. By recording those special moments that at the time seemed like just another ordinary day, are now cherished images and fragments of time that I will forever treasure. This is the model I bring to Megan Small Photography, to capture a family hanging at home, a newborn in it’s first week of life, or a union of love between a couple and their families. Since I started my journey in photography I finally felt as though all the dots had been connected and I found my true passion. I have combined my love for art, children, babies, beauty, and composition into a successful and continuously rewarding business.

About the Session:
The Red Balloon book was a childhood favorite of mine and was then passed onto my nephew Casper. We started reading it to him far before we realized as he got older that he resembled the main character Pascal quite a bit.
The story is a little boy named Pascal, who on his way to school one morning, discovers a large helium-filled red balloon. As he plays with his newfound toy, he realizes the balloon has a mind and will of its own. It begins to follow him wherever he goes, at times floating outside his bedroom window. The red balloon follows Pascal through the streets of Paris, and the pair draw inquisitive looks from adults and the envy of other children as they wander the Parisian streets.
So we hit the streets of Hollywood, the Boulevard to be exact, with a red balloon to recreate this sweet story.
