I’m so glad I captured this moment on film. I should’ve known better than to take a 2- year-old for his first haircut on a day when he was feeling so very cranky. I think I thought it would cheer him up. I guess I was wrong! It didn’t and I’m so glad it didn’t because what I got, what I was able to capture, was something better than your average well-behaved child sitting dutifully for the barber. I got a photo depicting life the way it really happened. Not the way I wanted it to happen.
My son just turned 26 but he loves this picture of himself. Why wouldn’t he? It’s unique. Just like he is.
