This past week I spent time with Sawyer taking photos of her favorite color. Right now, she will only wear purple. She wants everything to be purple – her cup, her juice, her spoon, her clothes. It is a new phase that came on fast and strong. While the amount of laundry I do to ensure she has a purple outfit may seem grueling, I know that there will come a time when I look back fondly when she would only wear purple. There may also come a time when she hates purple and I can show her that she in fact used to LOVE it!
Last week she was determined to wear every item of purple she owned, so I thought that was the perfect time for photos of her favorite color. She was sitting with her grape juice box wearing all of her purple and I couldn’t resist. This is a detail of her life right now. It tells her story. And I love this photo.
Since I’m trying to tell a story, I didn’t want just photos of her face. I wanted to show how her coat, sweatshirt, sweater, and pants were all purple.
While I don’t often take “portrait” style shots when I capturing defining details, who could resist that little smile?!
Milo wanted to come sit and have his picture taken too. Again, not something I can resist when the kids willingly let me take a portrait style photo!
Does your child have a favorite outfit or color and have you taken the time to take photos of her favorite color? I challenge you to try to capture this fun detail before they move onto something new!
