One of the first photographers whose work I fell in love with doesn’t photograph children. It took me a while to realize that part of the reason his images looked so technically perfect *all the time* was because he was working with adults. Kids are a completely different ball game.
Sometimes – no all the time, there’s some kind of technical compromise. I can’t help but love it anyway. Even on a deeper level that’s just how life is – never quite how you planned it and full of making things work with what you’ve got (for those of us who love plans it can be a tough lesson!).
The awesome thing about kids is that what they come up with is always better than what I could have imagined. Thanks for spending the day with me Ansley and Luke – you remind me to let lose!
|These have to be two of my favorite images of all time. Can you look at these without grinning ear to ear?|
|Luke was way, way more interested in football than me. Totally understandable.|
|This caterpillar saved the photo shoot. They were winding down when one of the kids found it and we got a few more images after that. Yea for caterpillars!|
|After this session I wanted to keep Heather – she is incredible with children!!!|
