I met Megan around 5 years ago when she came to my workshop. I was immediately smitten! She’s got a big laugh, an incredible amount of energy, a big personality aaaaaannnnd I think she’s hilarious. Oh, and she also happens to be gorgeous!
When she asked for a photo session of her perfect little family, we couldn’t have been more excited.
Just like his momma, Leo has theeeee best & sweetest smile!
I mean… LOOOOK at him?! I’m DEAD! Okay, maybe that was extreme but I’m certainly not known for being subtle!
Drew, thanks for being such a patient and perfect dad / husband. You knew exactly what to do to make this little man rally. It was truly an impressive thing to witness.
Orrrrr maybe this is my favorite….
I sent the photo on the right to Megan in a text… she texted me back, “Oh.my.gawd. This one just made me cry. I can’t even tell you how much that photo means to me.”
I responded, “I had a feeling THAT would be the one that would get you. Because it’s perfectly you two. It’s 30-year-goggles perfect.”
She wrote back, “I love that you SEE that. That’s what makes you so so good Bobbi. I mean kids are cute and all and can make great photos, but you photograph relationships and love. You are amazing. And this was a photo of us during our first month of dating. Ha! Kinda the same. Gawd, except drew had brutal light jeans on…”
We just adored this little family. 🙂
I realize that you can only see half of Leo in this but that’s what makes me love it! It truly shows his energy and his craziness.
….and he definitely loves his momma!
I feel comfortable sharing this little tidbit here because Megan is a photographer herself, so she gets it. 😉
You see, Leo refused to take his nap that day… even after having a morning at the pumpkin patch. Needless to say, he just wasn’t feelin’ in the mood for a photo session. So I’m sharing a bit of reality for those who may need it today. Sometimes I look at incredible blog posts by my photography heroes and then I want to sell my cameras. Culled down social media versions of ourselves are just a fraction of real life.
Leo is a feisty bowl of sunshine who is allllll boy and full of personality; but when it comes right down to it, he just loves to snuggle on his momma.
Much love friends!
