Today’s morning photo session with the lovely Herndon family was a delight. We had perfect fall weather and enjoyed gorgeous scenery at Yates Mill Park in Raleigh. Molly and Jason (mom and dad) are always good sports and their two sweet daughters – Madeleine and Avery – have smiles that melt my heart.
Madeleine and I shared a special few moments today when she asked to take pictures with my camera. And who could deny that request!?
She’s nearly three years old and super friendly, offering hugs to me throughout the session. So of course I let her control the camera, just a little bit. Here is what she produced:
For a three-year-old, isn’t she amazing!? I asked her if she wanted to be a photographer when she grows up. The girl has talent, already.
“No, I want to be an Octonaut,” Madeleine replied.
And that’s why I love toddlers. They have dreams. Big, glorious, superhero-sized dreams.
But if that falls through, she has a future in photography.
