This little man and his parents were a great start to the 2017 season. We met at my favorite local park. I have photographed so many sessions here, more than I can count at this point. It's funny because I find a new place each time I am there. I never feel bored and "over-it" as a go to spot. I'm excited to frequent the park even more now that I live even closer.
Christopher is such a pleasant little guy. Never once fussing or crying during his session. There were a few "I'm not so sure about this" faces, but never a whimper of discontent. We even got a few little smiles here and there.
I have said it so many times and I'll say it again... "There are not many things sweeter than little ones playing with dandelions." As adults and home owners, we spend money to get rid of these "weeds" in our perfectly manicured lawns, but gosh I really do love dandelions.
For me they bring back memories of childhood - counting petals, giving them to my mom, making crowns, popping off the flower, (...mama had a baby and it's head popped off..) and making wishes on their delicate seeds. Today, I love getting them from my own little guy and for many people I know that they serve as a reminder of those we have lost. Now that I think of it, maybe I should cancel our lawn care service ?!?!? ;)
Disclaimer: No dads were hurt during this photo session....well not seriously hurt.
We've all got that one friend who never fully cooperates.. "It's okay buddy, I gotcha!"
Thank you guys! Christopher is a such a blessing. I can't wait to watch him grow and capture more milestones along the way.
All my best - Mandy
