Liam and the beam


As long time readers will know, we love visiting the Pratt Campus. Yes, I went to Pratt, so I'm very comfortable there, but honestly it has less to do with that (I've lived in the area since graduating but probably didn't step foot on campus for at least ten years) and more to do with the fact that it's beautiful and a great place to take Liam to run around, dig in the dirt and relax (or do what passes as relaxing when you're with a two year old).

The fact that there is art everywhere is a bonus!


Liam is totally fascinated by this cantilevered beam sculpture - the beam actually moves up and down very slowly, a fact that he picked up on right away.

Here he is pretending to talk on the phone. Apparently "dinner" and "bread" called.


And yes, a concrete wall makes for a great backdrop. One thing I suggest to photosanity workshop participants is to give their kids something to do that will make for a great photo rather than just asking them to smile for the camera. Here I told Liam to reach for the beam!

Keith and Liam - a special father/son bond


Liam and Keith have such a special relationship - it's something I love about being a mom, and I love seeing it grow and develop.

Basically, they just adore each other. Keith has usually left for work by the time Liam wakes up but Liam's anticipation of his return starts with the start of the day, and builds throughout as Liam inquires as to when Keith will be home, and plans on what he's going to show him and do with him. By the time Keith walks in the door at the end of the day, Liam's face just lights up with joy and excitement.

The other day, Keith had to work at the weekend and I took Liam to the park (actually, to the Pratt campus near by which functions as our closest park). And yes, I had my camera out and when Keith came up behind me to join us, I happened to be in the perfect position to capture Liam's expression when he saw his Dada.

I love this photo - definitely a recent favorite. To me, it's all about Keith and Liam and their special father/son bond, even though Keith isn't even in the photo.

Luke and Michele - photo session at the Pratt Campus

Last Friday, weather and schedules finally aligned and Michele, who won a gift certificate at the Mother's Day Diaper Drive and Cocktail Party back in May, came over with her son Luke for a playdate/photo session. Isn't he a cutie?

All the rescheduling paid off as the weather was gorgeous and the boys ran around on the Pratt campus while I took photos and caught up with Michele, who is expecting another baby boy at the end of the year - and she's looking fantastic.

Liam saw these photos as I was finishing my edits yesterday and said, totally unprompted, "Is that Luke?" Luke obviously made an impression on him - and me too. I loved photographing him as he climbed all over a sculpture on campus.

Michele, Richard and Luke, I wish you all the best with the new addition to your family! I wish we could have hung out for longer - next time!

Reconnecting

I recently reconnected with Galit, a friend from college who is now a nurse practitioner, and we spent a lovely afternoon hanging out, catching up and, of course, taking photos. Toddler kisses for mommy's friend from way back when, on the campus where we met - what could be sweeter?
