About Chicks in Hats

The inspiration for Chicks in Hats came in 2011 when my then 7 year old daughter made tiny hats for our pet chicks and asked me to photograph them; we had so much fun doing this together we decided to do it every year. We are now in our 5th year of photographing chicks and still enjoy the process; my daughter puts the hats on the chicks and jumps out of the shot while I try to shoot the photo as quickly as possible. It's challenging trying to capture the chick wearing the hat as the hats fall to the ground or are flung off in a rather rapid, unpredictable manner but when we actually get the shot we feel victorious and celebrate together.
