my oldest just turned three.
he is curious. cautious. and full of joy.
he forces me to be better.
he is my mirror-
showing me, often everyday, my shortcomings
he's a people watcher,
an observer, much like me.
but once he's gotten his bearings,
he's passionate & full throttle.
i had the spot in mind because of the cluster of trees.
all we brought were the boy & the camera.
the boat & branch in the water were little miracles.
i love it when that happens.
i wanted these photos to be reflective of cobe's spirit.
i journaled, as i often do before my sessions,
how i wanted these images to feel.
here are a few words i wrote down...
boyish, cautious, brave, strong, texture, light & shadows, explore, cobe- authentically cobe
that last one was the most important.
