In the last week, the colors in Grand Rapids have started to peak…between the beautiful colors and the amazing soft sunlight of fall, it has been fun to take outdoor pictures.
I have been photographing this family for awhile and it is so much fun to see their family growing and the kids growing. What sweet little boys!
This little guy was feeling pretty camera shy, which is very typical for his age. A reasonable goal for kids this age is to have them simply look at the camera. We exceeded our goal, though, and ended up coaxing a few smiles out of him…good job, mom and dad (parents often feel like they have to run a 3 ring circus behind my back to try to get their little ones to smile for the camera)!
And the newest addition to the family wasn’t camera shy, but he was so very curious! We had to find just the right thing to get him to look up–there are so many interesting things on the ground. You don’t realize that until you’re with a baby!
I love seeing babies and children developing and going through the different phases… it is one of the joys of working with return clients!
