I love creating a series of portraits that capture a moment. This is fairly easy to do when I shoot a friend’s wedding, but is much harder with a small child who seems powered by rocket fuel and moves at warp speed.

This series of portraits is of my sister with her son, Lukas, when he was almost two years old. We were traveling in the Cotswalds in the U.K. on a family trip, and one afternoon they came into my hotel room and jumped on the bed.

Everything happened so quickly that composition went right out the window, but I like the series for the sweet joy and tenderness of their play.
