Say hello to Myles (and his little sister, Rowen). I've photographed these two for the past several years & it's been a lot of fun watching them grow up & see their personalities evolve. Since the first session, I have always told Myles there was a lizard in my camera & if he smiles really big the lizard will make the camera go "click" and he just might jump out to visit.
Fast forward to a year later & one of the first things Myles said was, "Can I see the lizard?" So, every session I'm sure to bring the lizard along and hide him inside my lens so he can visit Myles.
A few months ago Nikki, their mother, contacted me to photograph their upcoming birthdays; Myles was turning four and Rowen was turning three. She wanted to capture them in their own little world, Myles loved that his daddy was soon to become a firefighter and Rowen loved wearing pretty dresses with her hair up. So that's exactly what we did. We headed to the Columbus Firefighter Academy & Myles was dressed like daddy (so was Rowen!).
