The Cobbler’s Children

There is a saying, the cobbler’s children have no shoes. This is often the case for photographers as well. I admit that I have to make a conscious effort to photograph my own son since, as a pro photographer, the last thing I want to do on my time off is take pictures. We have a few non-professional cameras around the house and I often use those for snapshots since my pro gear is usually packed safely away from toddlers hands. Cole’s first birthday was a couple of weeks ago so we wanted to do a shoot to commemorate it and we were planning to go to my studio. Well, last weekend we decided to go for a hike at Split Rock in the Mohonk Preserve with Cole so I decided to pack the big guns to take some outdoor photos instead. It turned out to be a fun albeit relatively short shot. The hardest part was picking out the best ones since he’s so darn cute in all of them. Below are a few of my favorites from the trip, I hope they make you smile.

for me?

I gave him these flowers to play with and they turned out to be a fun distraction for him.

    These are great, Keith! I’m so impressed with your ability to capture Cole without his hands all over your lens!! I can’t remember the last time I was able to get a good shot of Kale!
    I love that you decided to do these outside. I think all of the shots of him checking things out show his personality in a way that a studio doesn’t allow.
