Spaghetti & Sensory

Child Psychologists suggest that sensory play is a crucial component in early childhood development. As adults we are well aware of the senses of touch, smell, taste, sight, and hearing but can we actually recall at what age we discovered that soap is completely different than a candy bar. The answer in most cases is, No. Children need sensory activities to facilitate and encourage them to use scientific processes while they explore this world. Allowing children to participate in sensory activities enables them to stimulate their senses and develop cognitively, linguistically, socially, emotionally, physically, and creatively. Thus it is crucial that every child experience sensory integration activities early.
On this day, it was Baby Mason’s first sensory experience with spaghetti. As he began to slowly take his chances on the taste of spaghetti, it was obvious that one of two options were looming, the complete dissatisfaction and the abandonment of spaghetti forever or the absolute spaghetti onslaught. I was quite compelled to see what the future for this bowl of spaghetti would be. He soon dug his baby hands into the bowl and indulged. Noodle-by-noodle he slurped his way through the bowl allowing for quite some memorable photo’s to be captured from this sensory experience. To say the least, Mason’s senses were stimulated as his experience with Spaghetti & Sensory came to a filling end.

All the Leaves were brown on this fall day when Baby Alexander gave us a reason to gaze into his adorable eyes as he counted down the days till he was 1. Turning 1 is a big deal for every infant as this is the time they begin to walk, talk, and zip around. Before the big hoorah, it was vital that I capture the essence of fall. As we know fall brings the holiday season full swing. As such it was only fitting to capture details pertaining to the fall season and holidays. Brown leaves, apples, Halloween pumpkins, and Thanksgiving Indians. The natural sun setting beyond the trees was the cherry on top to allow for a warmer tone. The warm tone accentuated the colors of fall. After the fall shoot, the time had come for Baby Alexander to demolish his cake. Fortunately for table manners, Alexander politely ate the cake with his index finger and thumb. He ate the cake in gracious manner at first but once the flavor of sugar sparked his taste buds, he dug right in which resulted in a successful smash the cake session full of laughter, fun, and a sugary mess.
