It has been a while since I have photographed my son – or any of my kids for that matter! I was itching to try out a new lens anyway when Frankie inspired me to photograph him and his dandelions. We were out in the yard tending to our ducks and chicken when he became very excited about the dandelions in our yard.
He told me they were his favorite flower and was gushing over the bouquet of yellow weeds he had collected. So I ran inside the house and grabbed my camera. I didn’t care that he was in a dirty play shirt or that his face still had evidence of his snack he had just eaten. I took him to a patch of tall grass near our neighboring pasture and he agreed to take pictures with me … for about five whole minutes. But I’ll take it!
Capturing genuine smiles from Frankie can be a bit challenging. You would never guess it from the photos I share, but he hates looking at the camera. He is usually all for taking pictures with me but if I ask for a smile, I usually get a silly face instead. So, taking pictures has turned into a game. A game that I work very hard at playing because I want to capture that great smile of his I see any other time! I absolutely love how these photos turned out. No fancy clothes, no elaborate set. Just my sweet boy and his dandelions. ♥
This next one cracks me up because of his expression. He may look as though he’s winking but really he’s just trying to get his eyes to focus past the piece of tall grass that was in front of him! I love my silly boy.
After his mini photo session with Mom, we put his dandelions in water and he was off to play with our ducks and chicken again.
