Self-Taught Photographer Dad Captures His Young Son’s Perfect Summer (28 Photos)

After almost losing his son Emerson to a health scare, dad Adrian Murray was inspired to photograph all the precious moments of the toddler’s life. His newest photo project features sweet summertime photos of now-2-year-old Emerson, along with his little 1-year-old brother Greyson.

Murray’s adorable images show the little boys playing outside, exploring nature and interacting with animals around their neighborhood Kentucky, as well as the parents’ home states of California and Idaho.

The dad believes his photos will allow him to savor the boys’ childhoods a little longer than the passage of time may allow. He’s inspired by his children’s sense of freedom and love of nature, especially Greyson’s enthusiasm for animals. After “mom” and “dad,” the toddler’s first word was “horse.”

“This summer our kids have been able to interact at a level that I can remember as a child myself,” Murray said. “Their moments in the summer remind me of the times when I could enjoy everything within reach — and even some things out of reach.”
