Boom Cool

Not all of us are able to strike just the pose needed to exude the right level of sophistication, certainly not to be Boom Cool.

The great thing about photography is the ability to capture a single moment, that second of time when the subject hits that perfect pose and exudes power, confidence, and that certain level of sophistication. We call this Boom Cool. Don’t worry, though, two seconds later he was bouncing through the yard like a kangaroo, which is how Landon became Boom Boom in the first place.
