Owen has always put the biggest smile on my face. I've had the privilege of photographing him since he was three weeks old. He turned two years old last week. I have enjoyed watching him grow through the years. The last time we were together was at his One Year Session. He wasn't quite walking yet. He would crawl around and stand up as long as he felt safe to hold on to something. I have been looking forward to this session … in all honesty… since we ended his last session! Ha! I couldn't wait to see how much he has grown and changed.
Owen greeted me with a big smile and an even bigger hug. Hugs from my little clients always melt my heart instantly! Not only did he RUN to me, but also immediately started chatting away! He has gotten so big! He is absolutely precious. That light blonde hair and big brown eyes … I can see why Mommy and Daddy are so proud of him. In the days leading up to this session, Trina and I were discussing all the fun details ahead. I mentioned Jordan Valley Park (which is my FAVORITE park in Springfield). JVP is beautiful with lots of trees, hills, pathways, but most importantly the fountains. Ahhhh … the fountains are pure perfection! I know that Owen is a fan of swimming at the pool and boat time at the lake, so I thought the fountains would be something he would enjoy as well. I cannot tell you how adorable it was to walk up to the park and watch him see the fountains for the first time. He continued to say “Wa-der! Wa-der! Go Wa-der”! He was very patient while I snapped a few images of him with his parents and even a few individual images of him before we let him get in the fountains.
I smiled the entire time watching him through my camera lens because I could tell how much fun he was having. Owen has the coolest Mom and Dad because they were right there with him. They were not scared to get a little wet! You can’t beat a photo session near water on a VERY hot summer evening. It gave me an excuse to kick off my shoes and get right in the water too. Summer sessions are my favorite (no matter how hot it is outside) because of sessions like Owen’s. They are so relaxed and so much fun. I promise you … seeing the HUGE smile on his face will create a huge smile on yours.
I can already tell you that I am counting down the days until his next session. I love each and every time we all are together. Without further adieu I give you Owen and his very summery Two Year Old Session! Enjoy and Happy Thursday!
