This past Monday I got to spend the morning with my good friend Alli, capturing photos of her adorable little family. Alli and her husband Tyler are the proud parents of little Gavin, the sweetest, blondest, most adorable, not to mention high energy 16 month old ever. Over the past year and a half, (since the arrival of my own wee man) I have come to really enjoy capturing families, especially the babies and toddlers. They are so honest and in-the-moment, you just never know what direction the shoot will go, which makes for a fun, interesting and completely spontaneous session.
For the Perkins family shoot, since the weather was a bit nasty and unpredictable, we decided to do it at their fabulous new home. How cute is this family?? Seriously.
Gavin gave us about 2 minutes of posing time, then like any 16 month old, he wanted to be set free to run and explore. I was so glad I opted not to wear heels this day, cos he sure kept me moving.
At every opportunity Gavin was ready to break free and go about doing his own thing.
I love how kids can find so much joy in the simplest of things. Pushing the doorbell is hands down one of Gavin’s favorite things to do.
Finding random pieces of wood chips, is like striking gold.
Again, flexing his independent muscles. Did not want to hold Mommy & Daddy’s hand while we went for a walk.
But loved a little swing time with Daddy.
A true boy, digging in the leaves and dirt.
Half way through the shoot it started to rain again, so we headed back to the house, and I just love all of these special little moments I was able to capture of this amazing family in their own home.
Finding an alternative use for Daddy’s chess set.
Ah-dorbale Mom & Baby moments.
A little chill time with Daddy.
Gavin’s special chair.
One last snap of this cuter than cute family.
