swinging | columbus, ohio photographer
I remember when my son was close to a year old he was fascinated with watching fires. I thought a Japanese steakhouse would be perfect. Ummm, no. The kid cried like crazy. Good news was that he was no longer fascinated with watching fires. Bad news was I felt like I personally made my kid cry....which I kinda did...
As parents, I feel like we know our kids 80% of the time. The other 20% is a total crap shoot. You think you know whats going to happen or what they'd like at a certain moment and you're wrong. Problem is, that 20% always seems to occur at that moment when other people are watching. Like...lets say....a photographer.
This momma knew her son loved the duck pond. Beautiful. Only he didn't want a thing to do with the duck pond. He wanted to swing. Oh well. The 20% helps us learn to adapt....and me to figure out different ways to photograph kids swinging.
