Since it has been crazy windy here, and I can’t take pictures in this kind of wind, I have another Farmily story to share.
I’ll often get emails from people checking in on Eli and Chloe since the number of photos with them has decreased over the years. Both Eli and Chloe are well and wonderful, happy, healthy, and still super buds with Charlie. They just don’t like being photographed much anymore.
Sometimes Charlie and Chloe will be running around playing together, and I’ll go out with my camera, and Chloe will just kind of fall back and keep to the edges of things. It’s not like anything traumatic happened with the camera, she’s just over it. Which I totally get – I hate it when people take pictures of me. It’s like the process just became tiresome to her and Eli. So I don’t force it.
Charlie, on the other hand, has always seemed to “get” the bigger picture and willingly, eagerly, engages in it. I bring out the camera and he works it like Kate Moss. If he wasn’t such an active participant in this photographic journey, it certainly would not have gone on this long. I’m glad he is, and I’m glad it has ~ he is definitely the one calling the shots.
