This little guy of mine, he just loves to test the waters….and anything else he might dare to do! You just can help but let him try, cuz he’s going to do it anyway!

Boys will be boys!

Luckily, on this beautiful rainy day he was wearing his rain boots.  Actually, I’m going to say, “mud boots”.  He found his puddle, put on a great big smile and let us know he would be dancing in the rain!

Testing the water!

Is that somewhat a precautionary measure? Maybe the water will be too cold for dancing in the rain!

 Feels pretty good dancing in the rain!

This was the highlight of my day.  Just watching this little guy dancing in the rain and having so much fun, unbelievable for him and I!

Dancing in the rain

Unfortunately, it all ended with the last splash climbing up his “mud boot” and down into the warm soles of his feet.  Testing the waters and dancing in the rain came to an immediate stop.

Children Photography / Love Kenny

Children photography includes props like my little red wagon.  Sometimes I bring it along because I know there is just something about boys and red wagons!

Kenny enjoys the ride!

This is my second time photographing Kenny.  This time is for his special birthday #2.
This little guy seemed to be infatuated with everything on the ground…..especially dirty leaves.  I guess to a kid who sees so close to the ground can be pretty curious as to what all those multi-colored things are all over the place. There are so many, so similar, yet not one alike!  Kenny picked up leaf after leaf.  So, pretty much my entire photo session with him was at his level….ground zero.

Sometimes children photography can be a little difficult.  I knew Kenny’s photo session was coming to an end when I noticed he was getting a little agitated with me.  Every time he looked at me and saw the camera in his direction, he yelled “NO”!!!!  He yelled, and yelled and yelled.  Too funny this little stinker, but too cute!

Kenny’s expressions and curiosity were priceless.  This is what makes children photography so wonderful!  xo

Don’t Touch My Little Red Wagon

love my little red wagon

Thaddeus

This is my little friend Thaddeus….”Thad” for short.  Today is picture day for Thad and his family.  After a recent studio portrait session, I knew I better be prepared to entertain this little guy.  This is where I bring out the old “little red wagon”.  There’s just something about little red wagons and little boys.  Apparently, wagons were built just for boys, and they are always painted red!  Thad loved, loved my little red wagon!  He immediately jumped in and waited to be pulled.    After a brief tow around of about 20 feet, he felt empowered to do the pulling himself.  Thad was not just pulling, but decided he could be pushing as well.  That was when I knew I was in for a serious work out in capturing little Thad’s handsome face.  Thad went up, I went up, Thad went down, I went down…..up, down, up, down….all along the waterside.  This little guy was definitely giving me a run for the hour!  Thaddeus definitely loved my little red wagon, just look at his face!  Don’t touch my little red wagon!
