The Little Feet That Climbed. Polly Nance. Digital photograph. 2012.
I had to post these photographs, even though I failed miserably at snagging a clear photograph of my children. They were too excited to sit still! My son’s birthday is coming up (my, how time flies… he will soon be four years old) and, ever since he found that out, he has been persistently asking for bunk beds every other minute. Normally, I would not spend this much money on a birthday present (especially not for a four year old), but my two year old daughter Lennon needs to move out of her crib and into a big girl bed. And so, the time is nigh. Rush’s old bed has moved into Lennon’s room and these new bunk beds (a combined present from the Grands and us) have replaced the old. I made sure to purchase a set that would last him through high school. The bottom bunk is a full-sized bed that my husband can even fit on (he’s six feet tall), so I think he’s set. I never had bunk beds as a child and remember being completely envious (but glad to sleep on) of my friends who got the pleasure of laying their heads down to sleep on a bunk bed every night. Rush’s room is not the largest of rooms, so these bunk beds are a perfect fit. AND don’t worry, in case you were worried… cause I know you are probably sitting on the edge of your seat right now… Rush picked out SPIDERMAN sheets to dress his wooden bunk beds. Anyways, like I said, it was hard to get my kids to sit still and really photograph the moment… but, perhaps these photographs are more truthful to their characters?! HA.
By the way, does anyone have suggestions for a moderately priced but awesome flash (unless you know of cheaper) to purchase? I shoot with a Canon EOS 7D. I’ve been against flashes because I love natural lighting but, sometimes, you gotta have a flash…

Thank you for taking the time to visit and view my blog!
As always, please feel free to leave any and all feedback.
PEACE, LOVE until my next bloggy-blog boast, dear fellow blog readin’ friends. 🙂
You have such a great eye for capturing the magic of children!
Thank you 🙂
Polly, I really like the black and white–they always make me look deeper into an image, Sally
Thank you. At first, I didn’t want to suck the color out of them because Spiderman is so colorful… but, I ultimately preferred the black and white. I’m glad you liked that choice. It does make you look deeper. Thanks for your feedback 🙂
I agree: magic! and wonderful :)b
Thank you! 🙂 Glad you enjoyed them 🙂
I think these really capture the excitement of the event. What a couple of sweeties!
Some of these are very artistic Polly!
Thanks! I did my best… I’m not really happy with the way they turned out because it was hard to photograph in that room due to lack of space… plus, they were bouncing around everywhere. Haha! But, it was awesome to see their little faces light up and laugh like crazy. They love the bunk beds 🙂 Thanks so much for your comment 🙂
I want his bedspread.
They are so precious!
Haha thank you! They are a handful 🙂
