We are proud enough of our offspring to assume that every photo ever taken of them is absolutely wonderful. However, truth be told ... there's no way that is true! I could show some that would blackmail my kids (and MYSELF!) forever!
"The cobbler's children never have shoes" ... in principle ... is also true of the photographer's child. It's been a trial to get Ben's senior photos done. He accompanied me on a photo shoot for one of his friends, but I was so concerned about not shooting enough of the friend, that I shot very little of Ben. I did get this, though, and it made it all worth it :
Fast forward to yesterday ... I asked him to meet me at a certain park after I shot yet another one of his friends. By the time I got there, it was clouding over and becoming dark, even sprinkling. Ugh. However, we captured this:
Then today, he texted me as school was getting out, the sun was trying to shine and I said, "Hey, come get me and we'll shoot a bit before you head off for the evening." And I got this silliness:
Once a kid ... always a kid.
And then this ...
'Chucks' are his shoe of choice!"
And finally ... this fabulousness:
OK ... so now this Photographer's kid has some photos ... and this photographer couldn't be happier.
