what i've realized over the last few years of doing family sessions with young children is that you can never plan on things going a certain way. you have to go with the flow and flex with the youngsters. and if a nap is cut short to make it to photos, the camera may not be your little ones best friend ;) Regardless of whether the kids are feeling photos or not, we're going to make memories and capture the trueness of who they are.
while this 2 year old wasn't sure taking pictures was on the agenda for the evening (maybe because he missed out on truck-or-treat), we still had fun creating a lifestyle session that reflects what little boys want to do more than anything else - PLAY! We started off a Rockford Arboretum, and then mom and dad suggested we head over to a neighboring park, which was their toddler's favorite park to play at. the setting sun held out just long enough for us to get some shots of him in action at his familiar turf.
