I photographed the Flamino family at a park in Scottsdale, Arizona. The afternoon was full of fun and energy and snacks and running and more running. Getting either of the kids to sit was a rare occasion, so when they did, I took advantage of the moment.
This was my favorite image from the afternoon and not because of the composition or the light… I just know that’s the moment that matters to me as a father.
She has such beautiful curly hair. She was so much fun to photograph.
The afternoon ended with fun on the swings.
Focusing on a swinging child is impossible because by the time you get focus, they are on their way out of it. Instead of trying to get the camera to follow them automatically, I simply set a focus distance and waited until the child entered into my area of focus.
