Cedar in springtime #Family portraits#lil kids Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Apr 2 2010) Ariel arielmstallings Photo by Naomi Sheikin I love child photography that feels like it capture both the spirit of the kiddo, as well as their environment. In this case, it's springtime in Seattle, and local photographer Naomi Sheikin captured these shots of Cedar — the son of Julia, who wrote about her tattoo stretching during pregnancy. Yay for springtime… Thanks to Naomi for sharing these with me! Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

Reply Love that last one… it gets harder and harder to catch the essence of the kid in photographs as they get older and conscious of the camera. These are fantastic!
