Field Notes: Walk with Me

2/24/18

 

Walking along,

Don’t know what I will encounter.

I can anticipate, but not know.

I can expect and may receive.

I can grow or die.

 

This light, this heat, the air on my skin,

Touching you,

You are soft.

Is this moment forever?

No.

 

Look here, not there.

Reaching for you, but you are gone.

With you wherever you are.

Are you gone?

No.

 

Walk a little further.

Blister more.

Your heart is strong.

Mine is strong.

No.

 

Walk with me

Little man just turned 5 (oh dear God I feel old,) and because he wanted a Batman themed birthday party we did it up, fort style. Me and hubby transformed the livingroom (luckily already pained gray) into a batcave for his sleep over and these lil monsters had a blast! These are some of the awesome pics I took of them wildn’ out last night 🙂 .

The Perfect Age

One of my best friends once told me that kids make life more colorful. I think this is probably the best analogy I can think of for how inspiring and amazing having kids can be for us adults. I mean as a boring old adult, when do u ever stop to sit and run your hands through the sand in the sandbox or entice your dog to eat the bubbles you blow, or just run… just for the hell of it? My little man is now at the perfect age. He just turned 4 and every day is an adventure. He constantly keeps me smiling and is so creative
and smart, it is astounding.

Batty

As a photographer I can see why some moms I’ve worked with can’t get away from shooting their children; they are so inspirational. I love lil man, but I am more amused by the hilarious things he does as self-expression. These are the things I sometimes photograph often with a camera phone… in a snapshotty mom kind of way.
