New Tear Sheet: Conor Lyons for Dallas Child

I had the pleasure of shooting Conor Lyons for a story about gifted kids in the new issue of Dallas Child. Creative Direcor Lauren Niebes had told me about the assignment a week or so before the shoot, and we immediately began thinking of ways to illustrate his quirky personality and his advanced intellect. Conor was a fun subject to shoot, and a cool kid to hang out with. He draws really detailed maps, builds amazing WWII figurines, and has an incredibly inquisitive mind. Here's an outtake from the shoot featuring some of the clay soldiers he's created:

Many thanks to Conor, his mom Julie, and Lauren for her amazing concept and direction.
