The Toddler 40-Year-Old

This is my nephew Tim.  He turns 2 in a couple weeks, so it is up to me to document the event with a portrait.  Is it just me or does this kid look like he's about 40?  And has had a tough go of it, too?  The pic on the left is my Thomas Ruff tribute.
I like the leather sport coat and the phone.  He likes talking on the phone but will only answer yes and no questions.
Age 2 seems to be the best age for kid portraits, in my experience.  Old enough to like saying "cheese" but too young to be concerned with how you look in photographs.

Pictures of kids as adults make me a little sad, though these are cute!
I guess I like us as kids running around nude with dirt in our hair. (Even when we're grown up.)

About Me

My photo
Minneapolis, MN, United States
Photographer/Artist based in Mpls, MN. I have a studio in the NE Arts District--Studio #274 at the Northrup King Bldg, 1500 Jackson St NE. I photograph elements of nature to explore color, shape, and composition. My goal is to capture images of the nature around me in a way that explodes (or seaps) with beauty. If that nature is in a vacant city lot, all the better. (All images Copyrighted. Use permitted with permission).
