I have a confession... I used to dislike taking photo's of children. I had a definite age cut off where I would say that I didn't take pictures of children, which was all true. It's not that I didn't like kids I just didn't like dealing with the parents when they wanted me to pose and prop their little people up like mannequins, and let's be honest that's not my style anyways. However in the last year I have met some amazing little children who have changed me for the greater, this does not mean I'll be running out taking photo's of children all the time, it just means my ways have changed.... Ok now that I have that out of the way I can move on to the post!
Charlie! I can't even begin to tell you the awesomeness that is Charlie. Without getting into too many details Charlie was born with Hydrocephalus. A disease with no real cure other than many surgeries and brain shunts which sometimes don't work, but you would never know he has this by being around him. He is without doubt the happiest 2 year old I have possibly met. A knack for the spanish phrases, (it's totally cute!) and giving knuckles he is a true heart stealer. His parents are just as equally awesome FYI. We had a great little session at a local park that included adventures with the water fountain, other children's toy's and a really magical moment between Charlie and this other boy who helped him out on some of the playground equipment. It's always a good time when you run around with the heart of a little child and see the world anew through their eyes. Thanks for that Charlie :) -AG
