For those of you who don’t already know, Carson is my little nephew. He’s that adorable little person you see all over my website and blog : ) Sometimes I honestly think, if I love this little boy this much, it scares me to think how much I’ll love my own babies. He is so happy and funny and smart… and he is such a little character. By the end of the night as we were walking back to the cars, he randomly sat down on a curb by the sidewalk and sighed as if to say, “Whew, I am tired!” When we finally managed to get him to start walking again, he proceeded to sit on at least two more curbs on our way to the car… sighing each time : ) Taking pictures of Carson, and probably all 2 year olds in general, is one of the easiest and hardest things for me to do. It’s easy because he has no preconceived ideas about what a picture is supposed to look like… he’s just being exactly who he is. And he’s only 2… so all of these things that we never think twice about are new and intriguing to him… so he’s so expressive and there is so much genuine emotion to photograph. I love that! That being said… he’s 2 : ) And a boy at that…All of those moments of expression and genuine emotion come and go really quickly… there’s a lot of running involved. I have about 5 seconds to capture the things that I see. It’s really challenging… but in a really good way. I’m so glad I get to take pictures of this precious boy.
