Once kids reach a certain age, they become much more aware that there is a photographer. Some warm right up to me, while others, like this little guy, take their time. He wasn’t so sure about this strange, pregnant lady pointing a big black object in his face. Towards the end of our session, he started to warm up to me quite a bit! And with those eyes and his beautiful smile, it was worth the wait!I love his expression here. He’s snuggling up on top of dad’s shoulders. Still hiding from me a bit, yet feeling happy and safe with dad.This is one of my favorite shots from the session. An airplane flew over and he was so excited. I love the colors in their outfits, and the bright smile on their faces. A moment of sheer joy for mother and son.
