As I’m sure anyone with kids at home can attest, age 3 is a tricky one! Independence really starts to take over, “no” and “I don’t want to” are regular responses to anything you ask, and getting them to sit still for just one moment is like pulling teeth! While it certainly is a challenging age, that’s what I love most about it! It’s all a game for these little ones, and I try to keep the directions to a minimum and instead engage with fun, games and a few crazy sound effects.
Ethan hopped out of the car, saying, “Hi Debbie!” and we were on our way! While he started off shy, it wasn’t long before we were playing in the leaves, running through the grass and climbing fences. Though I almost forgot about the wagon of pumpkins that I brought along for a prop, I’m so glad I pulled it out at the end of the session because the last shot is one of my favorites!
