The cover photo is my son. I honestly can't remember what game he was playing or had made up. We were grilling chicken and the sun was about to set. it looked magical.
There were too many other kids, adults and pieces of playground equipment to get a nice shot of my kids playing in the water, so I thought I could just shoot their feet but still capture them having the time of their life. The shadow of the tree draws your eye up to the little water fountain.
Took the kids to a local Farmers Market and it's just chaos - visually. I decided to get closer to my subject (my daughter) and capture the moment. She picked out these flowers to bring home and she was happy with her choice.
Took the kids to children's science museum and they had many interactive stations. The bubble room was their favorite.... I mean they spent close to an hour in there when we first arrived. There were so many other kids and adults that I tried to just focus on Arika trying to blow a huge bubble with is amazing bubble maker. It was just a bubble wall. The light hit it just so that it made these weird light affects above her head.
Fake mustaches at the park and Ian wanted wear one.
I barely direct my kids... I just tell them to sit on this green bench and then let them be kids. I'm forever wondering what these kids are thinking...
