I recently had the good fortune to meet this lovely family. They purchased a session that I donated to St. Baldrick’s (which is a fantastic organization…if you haven’t heard of it before please take a peek!) and I’m so glad they did. It was really quite easy to photograph these guys because they are not only a very photogenic bunch, but they are also fun! We had a great time playing at our session at Mandalay Beach Resort in Oxnard and I’m pretty sure little Mr. Deagan took a looonnnggg nap afterward…we wore him out!
I like to have my clients bring items/toys/props that are reflective of what their kiddos are into at the time. I think these little trinkets are a great way to bring out their personalities and will help us as parents to better remember what they were like at a given age. As all of you parents out there know, once you have children time passes at warp speed. I don’t know if it is the lack of sleep, constant running around, the never ending struggle to keep your house from looking like you belong on the next episode of Hoarders, or a combination of all of the above. All I know is that once you have children time speeds up–exponentially–and it is so so important to hold on to the memories that we have of our little ones, because really these memories are all we have at the end of the day.
Sorry…off on a tangent there!…right now Deagan is into his skate boards, both big and small. Have you ever seen such a cute little skate board? I love it!
He was pretty good on his big board, too. With a little help from dad of course…
Thanks so much to this family, not only for the super fun session, but also for supporting St. Baldrick’s. I appreciate it and I know they do to!!
