do you remember the first time your baby rolled over? the first solid foods? the first laugh? the first steps? the first word? you ran to tell your partner, you called your family, you clapped and screamed and possibly took a picture. i had a chance to spend time with a wonderful family who is having all their firsts. their son is adorable and actually very into eating shoes. he wanted to feel the ground. why not eat it, put as much in his mouth as possible and as quick as possible. they are new here, to earth, just let them be curious. its how they learn what this world is made of. unless its toxic, in that case get it out of their mouth quickly and call poison control (who by the way, is fantastic! i highly recommend them)
anyhow....it made me want to go back to those moments with my son and really really remember the pure moments, the firsts. enjoy the firsts because its just the beginning and so much joy is to come! these photographs will tell the story of their first year, their first everything. glad to be there. Shot at Charter Oak Park in Camarillo, CA with my Nikon.
