Mom’s Photographs Of Son’s ‘Pocket Treasures’ Are A Sweet Reminder Of Childhood Curiosity

Melissa Kaseman

Melissa Kaseman is a professional photographer. Her subjects have taken her all over and she has an insatiable desire to create, discover and learn.

Recently, she started to photograph the contents of one of her sons’ pockets. What she found was a beautiful way to capture his imagination and how a child sees the world. She’s titled the collection “Preschool Pocket Treasures” and the photos are a sweet reminder of what it was like to have the imagination of a child.

Kaseman told the Huffington Post, “The magic of childhood is so fleeting, and these objects I kept finding in Calder’s pockets represent a chapter of boyhood, his imagination, and the magic of finding a ‘treasure.'” She added, “I like the idea of the photographs being a taxonomy report of a child’s imagination, specifically Calder’s. I hope he carries the wonderment of discovery throughout his life.”

Here’s some of my favorites. Looking at the photos, can you imagine what he was thinking or doing that day (or where he may have been) when he stuffed the objects into his pockets?
