kids in motion

I like to move it move it

I’ve heard lots of people say how movement shots are great for kids and how it’s nice to capture pictures of them jumping, which is great and all except that baby girl doesn’t even know how to jump. Her idea of jumping is like a cross between a constipated squat and a knee spasm that results in zero elevation.

In mathematical terms,

(constipated squat + knee spasm) x 0 elevation = jump fail

But while I was going for that perfect picture, I realized that what made for a more awesome picture was the fact that she was learning how to jump and enjoying the process. I’ll get the perfect jump shot with Air Jordan hangtime soon enough, now is the time to get the gawky zero elevation shot.

So here they are.

    Haha so cute! Gotta love ’em all especially the 2nd one. My girl is learning too; she’ll squat for so long probably thinking it’ll heighten her jump but when she comes up the feet are still stuck to the ground! Totally killed me. :)
