My Favorite Subjects

Most photographers agree that photographing your own children can be a very challenging task.  While that is true, my children are also my favorite subjects!  I love having fun with them and if it's not working out that day, we try again another day. 

The day I took these photos was nearly a dry run since the lawn care man at this particular setting decided he wanted to "help" me with these photographs.  He stopped mowing to come tell me that he had won a few photo contests and then proceeded to pull out his phone to show me a few shots.   Seriously?!?  If he was a serious photographer, he would have known that those first few minutes for very young children are so very precious. Despite that rather odd start with a complete stranger, I managed to get some gorgeous shots that I already cherish (after he left).  :-)

This one just cracks me up. She saw an ant crawling up the tree out of the corner of her eye and turned to look at it just as I snapped it.  :-)  Yes, she is all girl.  :-)

They love telling secrets.  I have no idea what she told him, but I love the look on his face.

 Twirling fun!

My favorite of the two of them together!
