I have three of my own: Eliza (7), Marlon (5) and Cora (5). That's them, below.
And this is what I know about having kids: it's like walking around all day with your heart beating outside of your body.
And here's what else I know about having kids: they are messy. And stubborn and difficult.
And sometimes absolutely maddening.
And lots of times insightful and kind and funny. And often our best teachers.
When my twins were little there was a mantra that I used to get myself through many a difficult day: "The days are long but the years are short." Isn't this the truth?
When I photograph kids, I want to capture them as they are.
I don't want them dressed in that uncomfortable "best shirt" that itches their neck.
I don't want them to feel - on "picture day" or any other day - that they have to be anything other than who they already are.
I want to take photographs that celebrate the messy rooms, the shoes they put on the wrong feet, the lopsided pigtails.
Because this is real life. These are the moments - as exhausting as they can be sometimes for us grown-ups - that we'll never get back.
I know I've gotten a great photo of a child if, when I look at it, I can really feel them - if I can smell their hair, or feel their soft cheek; if the photograph helps me imagine the light just as it was on that day.
A good photograph of a child, I believe, is like a time capsule; a token from the past with the power to remind us how we were then, and what was so beautiful about that time, just exactly as it really was.
