I love getting to know families. Really, really. I actually knew this mama many years ago when we did a project together in college. We had lost touch in the nearly 10 years since then, and then one day found our kids playing together at Firefly Play Cafe. Awesome!
I could hang out with these guys all day long. I love watching them interact. Their oldest has a wild and wonderful imagination and the baby has an awesome curiosity and playful side. Mom and Dad give love, foster adventure, and ask the best questions, leading their little ones down these amazing paths of discovery.
Baby was born in the spring, as the buds were blossoming.
We had his sitting up session in the fall at Inniswoods Gardens, and this is where I first got a peek at those awesome facial expressions. I loved all of our sessions, but I really super loved his one-year session. We started at home, then headed off to a park where they spend lots of time. Loved watching him walk and explore! After my first sessions with their oldest, I was nick-named “Turkey Lurkey.” The name has stuck, and when I came in the morning for their youngest’s one year session, both kids were still sleeping. i snagged a couple of images really quickly before they awoke, but big brother woke up, and after a confused look, started laughing and asking why Turkey Lurkey was in his room:) Please do be aware that there is a super scary velociraptor in the following image. You’ve been warned. This next one makes me super happy. LOVE the way he was laughing and walking! You’ve done a fine job on this first year, little man:) Excited to see what unfolds in your future!
