This is my July Letter to Our Sons, a special letter I write to my son, Evan every month. It fits into a blog circle of other photographer-moms who do the same, and we link our letters to each other. To find the next letter, follow the link at the end.

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, right?! I will never forget how you imitated me last week. I was busily dusting upstairs before I had to put you for your nap. You were wandering the house, finding something to play with. You climbed up and down the stairs a few times, trying to see what I was doing. I heard you, but I kept my focus on the dusting at hand. All of a sudden I heard you excitedly ask me from far away “a picture? a picture? a picture?!”
I looked for you but couldn’t see where you were. My first thought was “Uh oh, I have all those vintage cameras in the studio. Did he grab one? Am I going to watch him drop it and break it?”
In a flash of a moment, I found you, standing near the railing, balancing your little feet on the ledge, your arms sticking out between the railings, holding a tiny camera smashed up to your face. You were wanting to take a picture of me! As soon as you saw me look at you, you yelled “cheese!!!!”
Oh Evan, how I adore you. Thank you for making me stop my busy work and take time to appreciate your sweetness. You have my heart wrapped around you as tight as can be.
Love & Cheese,
