sun-kissed | frisco child photographer

i love this time of year. not too hot, not too humid, not too many bugs and the sun truly feels like it is kissing your skin.

this day was perfect.

as i started to get my trusty camera ready for the session, it became very clear that my window of opportunity for pictures was going to be about 30 seconds. this kiddo was definitely not "into" having his picture taken and made sure i knew where he stood on the matter. he was so serious and no matter what i tried, he gave me the "stink-eye."

until i found his magic and away we went. gads, he was so funny! kids are simply magical when they laugh and tell stories and play. ours was not the longest session but it had to be one of my most satisfying. every indication told me that this was not going to be fun...for either of us... but in the end we were rolling in the weeds laughing.

i have to admit, when you get right down to it, i am one goofy duck. i have no shame. i am one of "them." i may be...well, older than 20...but deep down i am about 10 years old with mud on my face, shoes untied and cotton candy stuck in my hair. it might take me a minute, but eventually these kiddos recognize a fellow goof-ball, then all is good.

thank you, kind sir, for sharing some of your magic with me.
