Love Photographing Families Too
This beautiful family asked me to photograph them and their amazingly sweet and handsome 1 1/2 year old son for a Christmas photo. The mighty Hudson River was a beautiful backdrop on this warmer day. At first I was a bit worried that the cloudy day would pose too much of a challenge, but the skies opened up just long enough to get a few shots. Even though1 1/2 year olds are notoriously the most difficult age to photograph, I can't stop watching and giggling at the drunken sailor gait they all have while learning how to navigate their limbs. They are so incredibly busy and love to run and run and run! It's such a frustrating age for them as they want to communicate so badly and words are on the tip of their tongues, just waiting to formulate and spill out. I remember my kids went from nothing to full sentences and it was only then that I realized just how frustrating it must have been for them. I always tell parents of 1 1/2 year olds that I can guarantee a few fantastic shots but it won't be as many as I usually capture. We get what we get.
