The oldest found a ditch full of mud and soon it was all over his hands.

 

And then it was all over her, hands, arms, legs, bright red dress with tiny, white polka dots.

And instead of stopping them I photographed it.

There was a warm breeze and the sun was shining on a day the weather man said it would rain. I always know I’m going to get into trouble on the days I take photos instead of stopping them. I weigh the pros and consand decide if the gentle, usually joking commentsfrom Mom or the husband are worth it. 

“You just took photos while they stomped in the mud?”

“Put the camera down and grab him!” Mom told me when my son was a year and started up our stairs. Of course, later we all laughed watching his chunky, diapered rear end waddle up one step at a time, me only a few steps behind.

Though never putting them in danger, there is something thrilling about pushing the photographic risk to the edge to capture the defining shot, knowing your documenting life at its best. 

 

Defining childhood.

Defining heartbreak.

Defining joy.

Defining moments.

Simply with the click of the shutter. 

Definition of life’s little details, forever solidified frozen for future generations. 

Four on Four February

Four photos on the fourth day of the month that represent the previous month in some way. That is the goal of this particular blog circle. So for this post I’ll be sharing four of my favorite photographs from January. To continue the circle please click on the link to Jo Davis’ blog HERE.

Four on Four for October

This is part of a blog circle with Clickin Moms that showcases four photos on the fourth of the month! At the bottom of the  post you’ll find the next link in the circle.

This past month we’ve been trying to enjoy our outside time as much as we can because we know those days we can spend playing in the fresh air are limited once the leaves start falling and the snow starts covering our ground.

Four on Four | Ithaca NY Child Photographer

We have been enjoying the summer, taking things as the come and that has included playing in the puddles after a rain storm moved through recently.

Somehow my daughter ended up without clothes at one point, but, well, that’s what living life as a toddler is all about, right?

This post is part of a Four on Four blog circle through Clickin’ Moms. This is the time of the month when we choose four photos from either an event or simply taken in the previous month and then share them.

Enjoy other photographer’s work by following the circle. Next up is Chrissy Mazer
