As a photographer, and especially as a dad, I love watching kids experience things for the first time – they’re full of curiosity and want to explore/experience everything! And it’s so much fun to watch them approach something new with cautious excitement. It’s often the simplest stuff…the stuff we, as adults, look over and may never even notice. But when we get to experience a moment through them … there’s nothing better.
I was downtown with a family a couple weeks ago and love this progression. You can see in the first few shots his timidity, as he wants to hold his dad’s hand to make sure it’s safe. But then, by the end, he’s in the middle of it all…getting soaked and loving it! 🙂
