these families, these kids and their session. these images give perfect examples of why i love to photograph babies and kids . . . kids aren’t afraid to look at the camera, honestly look at it with wonder and joy. kids and babies aren’t afraid of pda (public displays of affections) – as you can see in the shot of the group – everybody is touching each other!! babies and kids don’t care if they have dirty feet (ok, their moms might!). this session was focusing on the littlest of the bunch – the two redheads. it’s always a pleasure and a privilege to spend time with these families!!! xo
another example – you never can tell what kids are going to do. it’s like she’s saying “hi!! i’m a very cute baby from france!”
and yet another example. you may look at this photo and see a boy sitting on a bench. but if you look a little closer you’ll see he’s got some bumps and marks on his legs, and sure, i could photoshop those marks out. but to me, this is part of the reason we document our kids. i look at this photo and see a sweet baby boy who is a fairly new walker, so maybe he’s still bumping into things, or maybe he’s just a rough and tumble boy. he’s touching his toes together, which may indicate a little shyness. years from now it’s little things like that which will trigger a memory about when this photo was taken, what was going on. at least i hope so.
