A few weeks back, on a particularly warm day in October, I had the privilege of photographing the Peralta-Grullon Twins for their 3rd birthday in the Winding Hills County Park in Montgomery, NY. Such beautiful little souls. They melted my heart as they hugged my legs and exuded enthusiasm.
Kids are the awesomest little beings. No doubt they are one of my favorite things to photograph! Sometimes when I work with parents and their kids, they are pretty concerned about their kids behaving and smiling AT the camera. There is something about the rambunctious and free spirits of young ones that reminds me to be in the present and photograph what I see, not what I am anticipating. I like to remind parents that there isn’t anything to worry about. There is always joy in their quick movements and smiles. I enjoy the challenge and will always have a place in my heart for this, even as I merge into branding work.
