Although photography is my favorite thing to do, it is not yet my main source of income. I am lucky to have one of the best day jobs ever: getting to nanny my nephew J. J is probably the best child in the world, and that is coming from an unbiased part of my heart, if there is one. I have been babysitting since I was fourteen, so I have been around many children. I can honestly say that he is one of the sweetest and best behaved children whom I have ever had the privilege of taking care of. Of course he pushes my buttons at times, but he also is genuinely sorry when he upsets anyone. He will make a great brother, friend, husband, and parent one day.

J loves my camera. He always has. He may be slightly obsessed. I can't take it out without having him bombard me requesting to take pictures of him or to let him take pictures of things.
So when he turned three, I knew exactly what he would love to do for his last birthday as an only child: photo shoot!
