Our little Fireman

I cannot believe that my nephew is 2 1/2 years old! Where does the time go?? What a blessing he has been and continues to be in my life. I did not know I could love such a little person as much as I do. Every time I get asked to do a shoot for him, I cut them off mid sentence to say “YES!!!”. Not only am I biased and think he is the most adorable kid, but he is such a joy to be around. He “loves big” and it is such a joy to see him get so excited about his toys, cars, his mom and dad and just being alive. It’s amazing how much he has taught me about really enjoying life.

When I was told that they wanted some fireman pictures of him, I had so many ideas come flooding in my head. The first, obviously, was to be able to shoot at an actual fire station, and thankfully the fireman in Snellville were very generous to let us shoot as much as we wanted. Although a little nervous, Cullen was enthralled with the big, red fire trucks, the station and all the color. Of course the cars whizzing by out on the road were just as exciting. 🙂 I also knew I wanted water to be involved, not only to go along with the theme, but mainly because water is one of Cullen’s favorite things to play in. I was hoping I would be able to capture the sheer joy in his face. The lighting and beauty of the day could not have been any better. As the shoot was coming to a close, and Cullen was still containing that beautiful smile after a long shoot and squealing as he sprayed us all with the hose, tears filled my eyes. Those are the moments I am so blessed to be a photographer. Those are the moments that are so valued, Those are the moments that are so simple and that could easily be overlooked if you are not watching closely, Those are the moments that I thank God for what I get to do, and for how He has blessed me.

I hope you enjoy the images below- it was an honor as always to get to do this shoot and to be apart of this sweet boy’s life.  Incredibly blessed!

Thanks to Jeremy for all your help in assisting with the shoot and for the kind fireman who made us feel at home! ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
