I love kids. I love how unpredictable they are. I love how quickly they develop and grow up right in front of our very eyes.
I am a happy uncle to two nephews and four nieces! All under the age of 5! =) Photographing them through their different phases of life has been a joy. I love going back through images to see how tiny they were when first born.
Thus when Ashley asked me to photograph their second child, I more than happily agreed. Nate had the sad responsibility to be my cabin leader when I was in junior high. I was a stubborn, feisty kid. Nate was also my high school youth leader at church. So needless to say, photographing his family was a privilege.
When photographing children and babies, I really try to capture the ‘real’ images. They way they looked at you when you held them. The way they smiled when you tickled their cheek. They way they curled their lips when they were hungry. Because an infant’s expressions change after a few short weeks or days, I strive to preserve these moments so they are not forgotten.
