PIX11 Morning News

BROOKLYN – He’s only seven years old, but one Brooklyn boy’s photography skills has gone viral.

Mikaela Pabon posted a video of her son, Christian, snapping pictures of some of his friends at various locations across the city. The video has since won the hearts of many online.

Pabon told PIX11 News she noticed her son’s talent about a year ago. During a photo shoot for a campaign, Christian had asked his mom if he can take pictures of his sister, which turned out great.

He then asked to take pictures of his mom, which turned out “really, really great.”

When the pandemic hit and Pabon couldn’t work with photographers, she asked her son to be her photographer for the time being.

Christian’s mom said her son has taken pictures for Instagram and his friends’ birthday parties.

Why does Christian enjoy taking pictures?

“I enjoy it so much because I like making people happy,” he said.

When he’s not taking pictures, Christian also makes shirts and is expected to launch a new collection soon on his mom’s website, DressedinJoy.com.
