It feels like I’m always photographing something or other in life, and it seems that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. (Even at seven!)
Since she’s been showing a lot of interest in my photography projects lately, it came as no surprise when Cricket had a lot to say about her birthday pictures this year. From her outfit — a 90s-inspired dress and the coolest hand-me-down (read: the kid version of vintage) high tops — to the composition and poses, it was clear that Cricket had a vision for how she wants to remember herself at this moment in time. (To be honest, I can claim very little credit for these images; she was legit art directing her own photographs.)
I can’t help but smile looking at these pictures — at one point I wasn’t getting the photo she was describing, so she literally took the camera, posed me in her place, and shot an example image so that I could get it right. And I couldn’t have been prouder. That’s my girl!
Happy birthday, Cricket — my talented, tiny creative.
