A beautiful family + A beautiful (blustery) day in Yorktown, VA = One happy Photographer
Congrats to the Gates Family, they were the winners of MLP Studio's Big Birthday Giveaway back in August. The family was waiting for a the fall weather to roll in so they could toss on their sweaters for some cozy pictures and BOY did it. We had quite the blustery day, so blustery in fact that we canceled the "Beach" portion of our shoot and sought shelter from the wind behind some local historic sites.
I had a super fun morning chasing their little man around with my camera. And don't you just LOOOVE all those curls? He's just a couple months older than my own little guy so I knew just what to do to get his attention, we played lots of peek-a-boo, ran around like chickens with our heads cut off, sang silly songs and even rolled around on the ground for a few shots. He was an absolutely champ with the cold weather!! And those big ole smiles are absolutely genuine, he's one super happy boy.
