Birthday treats

Meet Chloe.

She explores the world beyond the 3.5 feet she stands at. Her nickname, monkey, comes from her ability to climb just about everything with great strength and agility while being a goofball and spreading smiles to those around her. At the age of 4 she is already a rock climber, an artist and mom’s sous chef. Above all, photographing her has proven to me that she is a teacher as well. Like most photographers, I have a bit of a tendency to strive for perfection—whatever I conjure it up to be—to replicate the idea that I have in mind. As I crouched, skipped and ran after her, Chloe reminded me that sometimes it’s best to let what is be what it becomes.

I had a fun-filled day spent documenting her birthday as she played in the park, enjoyed cupcakes and painted pottery with mommy & me.
