5 Minutes: Learning | Cleveland Lifestyle Photographer

Last week my nephew was over for dinner. He's 2 and a half. We are so obviously not a child-familiar household, as we we spent the entire "meal" either telling him to sit down or staring at him in disgust. He joyfully spent his time dipping bread into his mashed up meal, stuffing his slimy little hand in his mouth to properly place what his fork had failed to do, and rubbing and pounding said hand all over the table. Oh and belly laughing in-between each bite, leaving little bits of sogginess strewn all around his place setting. Honestly, I don't know how parents do it day in and day out. 

So after all of that, why I thought it would be fun to photograph Luke eating a banana is beyond me. How it went through post production and now here, into this little journal of mine, yet another mystery. Alas, here it is. Bon Appetit. 

Single Frame - Lucas | Cleveland Lifestyle Photographer

It's hard for me to believe that this little guy will be a year old next month. Sometimes I look at him and think he is still so tiny. Then other times, he looks much older - more like a toddler than an infant. The day this was shot, I couldn't decide between the two parallels. Instead, he was simply Luke. 

5 minutes - Kinetic Sand | Cleveland Lifestyle Photographer

Truth be told, I never in a million years would have given Kinetic Sand a second glance. I mean, sand is amazing as is, why would I need kinetic sand? That is, until the temperature dropped into the negatives and I had to occupy two 5 year olds. Thanks to an amazing aunt and uncle, these kids were occupied for the better part of the afternoon...
