Having a little Toddler is thrilling in so many ways. One of them is food consumption. I never thought I would eat off the floor, but i do, regularly. Take for example DumDums Lollipops, there is a still a large sized Halloween bag in our home. Needless to say there are many sticky sticks of hard candy in far corners of our home. I’ve looked at them long enough now that I have seen them enough to want to do something about it. Thats right, a small photo shot. First part is to collect the covers over a wide range, I really had to push the root beer on the kid, he seemed to only want the fruit. Oh Well, I could have faked it but he pulled the cover off in the way that only a toddler could. Torn and tattered I collected them one by one. I guess I should call his dentist. Maybe this was not a good idea at all!
Keep up, Keep in mind and Keep working :)
I shot some Stock Video of an inspirational pursuit In Central Park. The young woman is an actress that has been in several short independent movies. Very outgoing and takes direction very well. We worked though a small section of Central Park in an area I frequent often. We had a gorgeous summer day and plenty of foot traffic which helped in the busy feel of the clips. The sun near the Pond was amazing at this hour and you can really see it during the stretching portion of the clip. I was surprised we didn't have any "NY" moments during the filming of this. As we shot the running section, the model complained that she did not jog and also was fine with that confession. :) I really enjoy working with people in my Photography/Video.
I see our little guy is getting more and more into bath time. He really enjoys a variety of toys as well. Just like a child to play with a toy in so many different ways. Here you can really see messing around with it like a hat. I'm kidding, I put that on his head and photographed him about 40 times trying to get the right shot. He doesn't seem to mind, he like repetition. :)
I cant believe its already been a year. I guess I finally say what I have heard all parents say through out my life in this same situation. Its amazing to put perspective to a year in time with your first child. Its seems both fast and slow. But mostly fast if you think about it from the perspective of how much and how quickly a little person grows and changes in that first year. Little Ethan is as happy and healthy as a little boy can be and for that we could not be more happy. This is to our little toddler for making it as easy on mom and dad as a little guy could without even trying. :)
walking through a sprinkler at the park is tough, especially when its only 82 degrees out and in the bright sun. ;) That face says it all though.....to cold.
