New Melibelle friends

I absolutely love making new friends of Melibelle Photography…it always feels like starting a new journey, so full of possibility, and the day I met this lovely family certainly did not disappoint! The “C” family and I met early one morning at the arboretum and we had an incredible time! Mr. J was a wonderful treat, warming up to me rather quickly and even wanting to hold my hand…be still my beating heart! He is smack dab in the middle of toddlerhood and thusly wanted no part in sitting on laps or benches, which always makes for both a challenging and rewarding experience! Thanks to all the extra work his patient parents put in, we got some truly memorable photos that are so precious! I had a blast…thanks for being such a fun and extremely cool family!! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Mom was informing him that Tinkerbelle (his favorite!) was in the spider web! Look at his sweet little face looking so intently for her! Can you stand it?!

This was the give up moment when Mom just decided to let the little man do his own thing in a puddle…can you tell he loved it?!

There are simply some pictures that you KNOW as soon as you take them that you are going to love…this one is absolutely in that category. Mr. J was actually talking to the squirrels in this picture, but it is just so timeless and melts my heart every time I look at it!

This session was actually the inspiration for me to begin posting outtakes…thank you, Carly! ;-) Here is your outtake…this seriously makes me laugh…it completely sums up trying to get a toddler to actually be in a picture with you!!
