This is my new favorite picture of Sam, our 11-yr-old. I took it while we were sledding one day during Christmas break. I love every detail about it: his rosy cheeks, his badass skaterboy hat, his thick eyelashes, the snow caked on his hoodie. But most of all I love that look on his face like he is concentrating on something amazing off in the distance.
The reality? This child will not stand still for more than 3.2 seconds. I had him all squared up for a great photo atop the hill, probably talking a little smack to keep him smiling, and I didn't hit the shutter button fast enough. After my alloted 3.2 seconds he turned to gallop away.
So this is what I ended up with. I love it.
And that look on his face? Probably hatching some crafty plot for Sledding Hill Domination.
