“If we see a child who is two or three, perhaps four years old, we find a free human…And if we observe humans who are two years old, we find that most of the time these humans have a big smile on their face and they’re having fun. They are exploring the world. They are not afraid to play. They don’t worry about the past, don’t care about the future, and only live in the present moment.” – Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements
This quote sums up beautifully why I love age 2. Two year olds are adorable little free spirits, and Hudson is certainly no exception. This cute guy was so friendly and fun to photograph. I loved his messy, blonde hair and playful energy. Topped off with an incredibly cute hat and suspenders, this kid completely stole my heart.
Hudson has a natural knack for organization that is hilarious to see on a kid his age. He remembered the exact order I had the presents set up in when he first got there, and put them back in just the same way when he was done playing with them. He also likes to be clean, so when I brought the cake out he was a bit hesitant to stick his hands in but the sugar won out in the end. So funny!
I’m honored I was able to photograph Hudson as he turns two. A wonderful kid at a wonderful age.
Happy birthday Hudson!
