From Calvin's Lens


Calvin wants to be like his Daddy when he grows up.

Scratch that, he wants to be like him right now.

(He's pretty smart like that.)

One of the things he said that he would like for Christmas is a "real" camera.

As luck would have it, we happened to have a "real" camera burning a hole in Cory's unmentionables drawer! It was our old point-and-shoot from several years ago and it needed a little tweak and a little shine, but we boxed that baby up, but quick. (Shhh!)

Fast forward.

A couple of weeks ago we had some friends over for an impromptu lunch on a Sunday afternoon.

I had no idea Calvin was going all rogue-paparazzo on us, but then again, I'm a bit immune to that sort of thing.

He had two fetching muses.


He didn't dare inhibit their freedom of expression.

I cannot adequately express how it pleased this Mama to see that he attempted a close-up of an inanimate object. The fact that it relates to fashion is really just the frosting on the cake.

Homeboy busted out some tutu-action shots.

And I don't know about you, but I totally appreciate the artistic juxtaposition of the two Bridal Barbies with the muses. It's so...so...alive. It makes me feel something, man.

Later, he took the party outdoors, for a little posed Senior Picture photography.

(I cannot believe they went along with this!)

In the end, it was his lone self-portrait that had my heart all busted up.

I could be wrong, but I think my boy may be smitten...
