Ah! What's not to love about toddlers? Their seemingly boundless energy? The fact that they can get into anything and everything in under a second? But all kidding aside, the toddler years can be simply magical. After giving birth to her son Jaxon, Connecticut-based photographer Alicia Levy knows this better than anyone.
"My son Jaxon is the person who brought this wonderful new creative outlet into my life," she told POPSUGAR. "I loved capturing his simple moments, like the first time he looked in the mirror or the first time he had his face painted. That inspired me to want to do that for other families. He is my muse and inspiration, and I feel so grateful not only to watch him grow, but to have captured all of these memories for us to look back on."
And as far as taking photos of toddlers specifically is concerned, well, they certainly know how to keep things interesting.
"To me, what is so special about portraits of childhood (especially babies and younger children) is that it captures the innocence and uniqueness of who they are as a child at the time, and it also brings the observer back to the nostalgia of their own childhood and feelings associated with it. Every single moment is spontaneous."
