A toddler is a special type of person, and if you’ve raised one you know exactly what I’m talking about. Starting to come into their own identity, exploring all of their boundaries and yours, and discovering so many amazing things at once that any moment might just be too much to handle. Nora was no exception. This amazing little woman has so much personality it’s almost hard to keep up, but that’s not surprising considering she has such wonderful parents. Ben and Marissa invited me into their home when Nora was just a few weeks old to capture those moments of their new family with a newborn. And even though I’ve seen them many times since then, it’s still hard to believe that this tiny baby is now this spirited toddler!
The weather and the gorgeous Autumn sunlight were just perfect for portraits in Fitler Square. At first Nora was having a “toddler moment”, and started with little tears running down her cheeks, but quickly perked up when she realized we were going to be running around the park together. I made sure mom and dad had at least a brief quiet moment for a few photos of just the two of them, but Nora jumped right back in to steal the show again. When she was finished, she took Marissa’s hand and started leading us out of the park, and had a few more adorable faces for me before heading home.
I am so excited to watch Nora continue to grow and discover even more of her incredible personality. I have a feeling she’ll have some really interesting things to tell us once she gets a few more words!
If you would like for me to create beautiful photographs of this special time for your family, please be in touch, I can’t wait to hear from you!
