Last year we got to meet the wonderful Sandaluk family, and spend a sunny summer evening photographing them. It was pure magic.
A couple weeks ago we were lucky enough to get to hang out with them again! This time we focused on just Clark and Lucy, the adorable wee ones, as their dad wasn’t able to make it in town for the shoot.
Getting to create an entire session of just kids playing was absolutely fantastic. It was all about the two of them—having fun, exploring, and enjoying another perfect evening.
And I created the photos!
It’s incredible how much these two have changed in a year. Lucy is still adorable as ever, but now talks way more (sometimes in hilarious gibberish!!) Clark still loves to explore, and is now starting to learn hip hop dance. He gave us all a performance, and it was crazy awesome. That kid has passion!
Photographing kids has been a fascinating path for us. They are far more interested in the world around them than in sitting still for our cameras. But y’know, the more I’ve thought about it, the more I believe that’s a very very good thing.
It reminds me of what I think is a fantastic quote from an unexpected place. It’s from the movie Knocked Up. Two guys are watching kids playing in the park, and the father says:
“I wish I liked anything as much as my kids like bubbles”.
Isn’t that so very true? These two kids had an absolute blast with bubbles, tree branches, swings, and feeding the ducks some bread. Total cost? Maybe $5 for unlimited and unrestrained joy.
So, we hope that in our images and our Moving Portrait we were able to capture the curiousity and joy of Clark and Lucy. It’s pretty awesome stuff.
