It really shouldn’t amaze me that when we are outdoors and in the nature, I rarely find myself telling them ‘No!’ (‘No, keep your hands to yourself!’ ‘No, you can’t climb that!’ ‘No, stop hitting your brother’s bum!’)
Being outdoors stirs the imagination, brings out the adventurer and gives the space to get mucky, isn’t this the essence of childhood? These are my favorite moments to photograph…no need for direction, cues or any kind of posing!
Here’s a snippet of our littles (and bigs!) on the beach at the lake in Arkansas.
