The Craig family is one of my favorite families. I photographed Hodge when he was a newborn and seeing him at different stages as he grows has been a pleasure. We got together recently just to catch them at home for a day-in-the-life session. Launching rockets in the yard, cruising the bike, playing with trains and cars... I think Hodge might've enjoyed it as much as I did.
We simply follow the kiddo's lead. They are wonderful to watch and photograph because they are just being themselves. They play, they share, they frown in concentration and then grin the next moment. They sparkle. They are generous with play and joy and it's beautiful.
I started focusing on lifestyle photos and children at play when I realized how much I treasure candid photos of my own children.
