Yes, more bubbles. It’s amazing how well bubbles work at capturing the attention of a one year old baby! Little Max just turned a year old and his parents wanted some fun portraits – and now that he’s up and about and crawling all over the place we had lots of opportunities for fun! He angelically sat still for a while for some portraits on the blanket, but wanted to explore and move around – cue dad’s genius idea to grab his tricycle. Ear to ear smiles as soon as he sat on the trike. With kids there are so many precious faces that you try to capture in a photograph, but it can be difficult to capture pure happiness. You can ask them to smile, act silly to get them to giggle, make faces for them to imitate, but a real, genuine smile only appears in a moment of sincere, genuine happiness. Well the trike created this moment, and I was so grateful. Here are a few favorites from the shoot. Thanks to Max and his family for a lovely afternoon!
