When you’re greeted at the door by a little boy wearing a Mario hat and a toothless grin, you know you’re in for something good.  I wasn’t wrong.

After our session, momma sent me a Facebook message telling me that she realized that she wanted these photos to be of HER kids… not perfect robots. I had to smile. As a photographer, I never aim to turn kids into perfectly posed robots. Never. Instead, I strive to capture the essence of who they are. Wild, crazy, free. It’s easy for me to relate to the free spirit of a child, and while the session may seem like completely craziness – a lot of running and playing and screaming and laughing – it really is perfection.  To me, anyway… because perfection to me isn’t a stiff-as-cardboard posed photo. Besides, God knows that crazy is something I do well. 🙂
