This was a special session for me as Carter just happens to be the son of my new photography friend, Jody! Jody & I both have boys about the same age and are enduring that dreaded phase of childhood (for a photographer) when your own child refuses to cooperate with you & your camera. It just seems wrong that we spend so much of our time photographing other people’s children and yet the moment we put our cameras in front of our own, they run the other way… at full speed. So, Jody and I thought we’d try out photographing each other’s boys. At the very least, we know that we’re both quite familiar with chasing around 1 1/2 year old boys!
I was the first to give it a try this past weekend and met up with Jody and her incredibly adorable son, Carter, at the Marietta Square. She failed to mention to me beforehand that she is the mother to one of the happiest, most smiling little kids in the world! I don’t think I’ve ever had the pleasure of capturing this many smiles in one session! Carter has the best laugh… I think I had a smile on my face the entire time I was going through these just thinking back on the sound of his sweet laugh. Absolute cuteness… just see for yourself!
