My Goddaughter Sunni is a real character. She’s constantly making a variety of faces that, when viewed in pictures would lead you to believe she’s truly upset. Quite the opposite is true!
Take this set of photos for instance. She asked to be placed in the tree, but once she was in the tree she decided she wanted me to join her. When I explained that I couldn’t sit in the tree with her she immediately made these faces. The second after I removed the camera from my eye she started to smile and laugh like nothing happened at all. I wasn’t quick enough to catch the smiles, but trust me, she does things like this all day long. Her expressions go from happy, to sad, to anger, all within a matter of seconds. She ended up having great time at the park after all.
I have been thinking that I’d like to get her involved in some type of drama classes because, she’s already great at acting! Just look at that face!
One of the signature faces I’ve grown accustom to seeing on a regular basis over the years. This little girl has so much character it’s ridiculous!!!

Thank God it’s the weekend! I hope everyone is enjoying it? While out enjoying yesterday’s warm weather my son finally let me take a shot of him after cutting off his dreads that he’d been growing for the past 2 years. He even gave me somewhat of a smile! He decided he was tired of “all that hair” plus, he wanted to look more grown up for his birthday coming soon. I can understand because, I did the exact same things a few years ago. But you know how kids are, he might grow it back soon? Who knows?!
Hello everyone! Today I’d like to share a few candid portraits of a man embracing his baby while outdoors on a cold afternoon. While out shooting randomly with my Aunt I noticed this man and his family trying to enjoy themselves despite the brisk weather. When I approached them I noticed the piercing dark eyes of the baby, so I moved in close to try and focus in on them. Just as I moved in to take the shot the father embraced his child and held him tightly to shield him from a strong burst of cold wind. The baby looked at me very inquisitively as I pointed my camera in his direction and snapped a few frames . Once the father realized what I was doing he graciously allowed me to shoot a few more shots of his entire family. They were very nice people, and the encounter reaffirms exactly why I love photography. Meeting nice, interesting people with open minds that allow us to do what we love without issue. Very spontaneous and fun!
Happy Friday! I wanted to post this quick shot of my son taken a few days ago. This was the day before he decided to cut off all of his hair for the new year. Maybe I’ll convince him into letting me take an after shot of his new look? 🙂
