watching them grow
one of the greatest pleasures i receive from working with children is that i get to feel so absolutely privileged to be able to watch them grow.
my little friend sam and i go way back. i’ve known him even before he was born. i photographed his mom with her family at their cottage when she was only 4 months pregnant with him.
he is now 2 years old and i’ve been fortunate to photograph him every summer since he was born.
we meet again recently and i got such a kick out of hearing “s” count to twenty, obsess over thomas the train (what little boy doesn’t?) and chug his milk back (which called for a few wardrobe changes..ha, ha). i even let him take a few photos of me with his thomas (what else?) themed camera. a future photographer perhaps?!
can’t wait until next year!
UPDATE: we met again in 2010 and 2011. ‘Auntie Meecia’ loves you Sammy!
