I have an almost uncomfortable crush on Nolan. He’s two. Can I say that and still be a child photographer?? It’s the internet… no gettin’ that one back. Nolan is quite possibly the cutest 2 year old boy on planet giggle. I laughed out loud editing his pictures and I could literally eat his little face. The last time I photographed him it took a few hours for him to warm up to me, and by that I mean he didn’t warm up to me at all. Thissssss time, we were full on dating by the end of it and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I obviously love this kid for more reasons than he’ll ever know. His mama is one of my college roommates and a forever bestie. I actually can’t believe that at one point we were putting flavored vodka in our boxed wine and now she’s an incredibly attentive, smart, cool, gorgeous mama… and I’m sitting here typing this finishing up a cocktail. Some people might take a hint. I’m opening a bottle of wine.
This is one of my favorite shoots of all time. For obvious reasons, but also because it’s just them. No bells or whistles or pinterest.. well maybe a little pinterest 😉 … no backdrops or fake smiles or over posed bull shit. This is the Kozikowski family… on a Saturday morning. Danielle is gorgeous and perfect and skinny, Lee is fit and nice and a really good cook. They’re perfect parents in a perfect home with a perfect small man. Nolan runs around, falls off his slide, laughs, torments his cats, cries, gets changed in the kitchen, throws his toys, kisses his mama, sits on the potty then pees on his books, and flirts with me. He’s two, it’s every day life, and I love it. I hope you guys love these forever and in 20 years you look back and remember how fun this crazy journey was. I hope you smile and laugh and cry (obv). Your life is amazing. I’m so so so beyond happy for you guys and so proud to document it. xoxooxoxoxooxoxoox.
