While many people think my daughter would be the most photographed kid on the planet, the opposites is actually true. When I spend time with her, I’m eager to put my camera down and snuggle, play and laugh with my little pumpkin. So I have to find moments where I can fit her into my busy photography schedule, when she’s there and I already have my camera at the ready. Visiting and photographing her cousins (and their parents) in Virginia is the perfect excuse to get photos of my sweet girl, and I love the relationship she has with her cousins even though they live so far away. The photo of the four of them exploring through the forest brings back so many great memories of exploring the woods behind our house in upstate New York. There was never any shortage of weird bugs to freak about, cool sticks to imagine with, or large logs to climb on. Such perfect childhood moments!
