Bruises, Band-Aids, and Grass.

"A child reminds us that playtime is an essential part of our daily routine." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Last weekend I spent part of my Saturday running through a park, chasing a boy, and clinging to my camera while trying to snap buttons on it as quick as I could so that his parents will be able to remember this age. Not that they will ever forget the things that Noah does, or the things that he says, but maybe these shots will help to bring back some fun memories for them years down the road.

Warning: Noah is ALL boy. You may or may not see bruises, band-aids, and grass all over him.  :)

And yet this is a prime example of why I love photography. There was nothing to impress. Nothing to make things perfect. Just a day in the life of a child.

Enjoy this first series of images as he struggled to get his gun to work! I love it.

I hate to say that he never succeeded and just threw the gun onto the ground. Onto the next thing! Why not roll down all of the hills?

JOY.

I'm thinking Noah should produce his own CD and use this as the cover!? :)

Hello gorgeous brown eyes.

I'm in love with how this captures the end of our time together. I think all of our faces were similar to his! We were worn out from having so much fun together!

Thank you, Kelley, for allowing me to take pictures of your precious nephew. And to his parents for being so laid back and amazing to be around! I had a wonderful time and am looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
