For me a picture isn’t good because it’s technically perfect, although good exposure is important. To me, a picture is worth looking at because it allows you to hold onto something that you don’t really want to let go of. I love taking pictures of my kids because I feel like it is the only way I have of extending their childhood. To me, photographing children is not just about photographing their likeness, it’s about photographing their world as they see it. It’s not just taking pictures of children – it’s taking pictures of childhood.
So right now, photographing Luke & his childhood means photographing him with a truck.
So here’s Luke with his Tonka Tow Truck. I love these pictures. I love that he is wearing his monster pajama shirt and his “Car’s” undies (as we call them around here!) I love that he hardly notices I have the camera out because he loves this tow truck SO much. I love his chunky legs and his huge hands. I love that in one image I can see everything Luke was at 2 1/2 years old. These pictures make me happy
Luke, thanks for being 2 and a half forever on my blog
