Meet: Julian Sage

"I have no intentions of being a heartbreaker. *I* am a romantic."

And with that, he softly but sternly put an end to my "hey you're gonna be one heckuva heartbreaker kid" banter. And what's more, he did it with such grace, such quiet sophistication, that I didn't even mind being told I was wrong (and you KNOW how well that usually goes over!) But I mean c'mon, this is a kid who lists "learning to be a gentleman" as one of his interests. How could you not forgive him??

Meet Julian Sage. A thirteen year old powerhouse with the pipes of a Pavarotti and the panache of a Mister Michael Buble. I'm telling you, this kid is going places.

Literally.

Julian is currently touring all over the country for performances, including recently opening for the Jonas Brothers. (insert girly squeal here). Julian's about to hit the studio to record his first album, so he & his mom came down to hang out and shoot some album art. It's totally gonna go without saying, but this kid is a natural!

Special "pretty please with the sugar on top" thanks go out to the AWESOME Steve DePino for letting us "borrow" his equally awesome idea from a recent shoot of his that you can see HERE. Hey, what do they say about imitation being the best form of flattery? Oh wait, that's it.
