Addison turned two on May 21, 2011, and I really wanted to capture her two-year-old self in a relaxed, outdoor setting instead of formal studio. I think candid shots are always best - especially with children - and I didn't think Addison would like the studio experience too much.
Our professional shoot ended up being something the whole family participated in and we had so much fun. Mackenzie still talks about "our hike" and wonders why Akshay (our photographer) isn't in the pictures.
We went to Mount Falcon Park and although it ended up being much cooler than we thought it was going to be, it was a problem that two little white sweaters and leggings easily solved.
We love these photos and the emotions that are captured in each. A snapshot in time, one that will be treasured forever.
