Holding on

From the archives, but uploaded because I can't believe it's been a year since I took this. Wow. I'm so dang proud of his growth, but sometimes I just want to hold on to moments like this forever.


Taken the same evening as this well traveled shot.

    I believe I once told you that you were very lucky to have such a patient model available always... mine decided that picture taking activities were to be executed only in birthdays, Christmas and their own weddings... and since they are 7 and 9 that is a long way from now.

    Having said that....

    A perfect example of a fantastic portrait that shows emotions, story, and attitude without the need of showing a face.

    Probably one of your best images, definitely one of my favorites in your photostream and without a doubt one deserving a place in this pool.
