I have a very large extended family so all my life I have been around children of all ages. While I don't want kids of my own, it's always interesting observing children and seeing how they learn and process the world.
This is my cousin Kylie Addison Best. She is 2 years old and is so much fun. I want to capture her playfulness and wonderment of the world around her.
I always try to put myself in their shoes. I know it must be hard to be a kid, not having the freedom to do whatever you want to do.
I also always talk to children like they are adults. While I don't try to discuss politics with them, I also don't talk down to them or use some weird baby talk/voice. I'm not an expert on child development but I assume that if you talk to them in a normal voice they are more likely to develop vocal skills faster and better.
