a day with snizzle



Today I spent the day with my friend Lise and her nearly-three-year-old son, who she affectionately calls her snizzle. Lise and I have been friends since she was 12 and I was 11. We used to laugh hysterically at the things her 5-year-old brother would do. Now we laugh at Joshua. In a good way.

Joshua is the main subject of my photographic endeavors. I could follow him all day with the camera, capturing his expressions and moments of discovery. I have been photographing him since he was a day old. It's amazing to see how he's grown into himself. He loves the camera and starts showing off whenever it comes out.

Today I photographed him jumping on the bed, getting tickled, fingerpainting, eating an orange, running around butt naked (except for his socks), and

falling asleep in the midst of eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This little snizzle is too much for me sometimes.

The photo of Joshua jumping on the bed is outstanding, professional gallery material. I happened onto it while searching for something entirely unrelated.

Wow - I really love this post. I bumped back into it while following your tags on children. I agree... it is wall worthy photography!

I love your eyes to the world!
