Childhood Unplugged

There’s lots of things that can be said about this set of photos… like the fact that neither of my boys will keep their clothes on at the beach these days (it starts with Hooper wanting to pee and ends with Van wanting to be like his brother, who refuses to put his clothes back on after he pees), or the fact Van thinks he can still catch one of the seagulls (delicious ignorance), or the tantrum they threw by throwing themselves down butt-booty-naked in the sand because Van wanted to go “drive” the car (aka sit behind the wheel and cause what will later be hundreds of dollars worth of damages) and Hooper wanted to go play in the water, or the (hopefully not) foreshadowing image of Hooper digging through the recycling bin, or that killer yellow bucket that belongs to my friend Cindy (I’ll be posting some pictures of her and her beautiful daughter Mia soon).
Our new home is much closer to the beach, so when we finally move in, we’ll be unplugging via the sand and sea much more. How have you unplugged this month?

  • Ashley, these are so fantastic. Those little wild things running naked, as they should be, in the wild! You catch the best images, seriously. Love your work!

  • Running wild and naked is the epitome of childhood years in photographs . I have a photo when I was a child the same as this. Moms sure love to capture naked pictures of their kids huh. I think they’re keeping it in case they may need to bribe their sons and daughters one day when they are old enough to feel embarrassed over silly childhood pictures. Luckily, I have been a good daughter so there won’t be a need for my mom to reveal her cards.

  • I am in love with this series of photographs. Wow. Such beautiful, real moments. Gorgeous, as always.

    I am always curious about what lenses you favour when you take photographs – I am a bit of newcomer to photography, and am always curious about which lenses are used to achieve certain depth of field, detail, etc. If you ever have a moment to share, I would be forever grateful.

    • I shoot with a 50mm, 35mm, and 16-38mm lenses. The 50 and the 35 are best for creating the depth of field that you speak of. I recommend the 50mm 1.4 as a good, affordable, starter lens.
