Last fall I got to spend time with a rambunctious and adorable 18 month old Owen and his parents Beth and Rusty for their outdoor family photo at the Ballard Locks.
When I last photographed little Owen, he was barely sitting, and he definitely wasn't running. He was just sitting cute for those outdoor family photos with a baby at Greenlake and now we had fun with outdoor family photos with a toddler. It's a bit of a different experience ;)
When I photograph toddlers, I know it's a day I can skip the gym. They are busy moving and that means I am busy moving. Luckily little Owen was happy while he was on the move, and we were able to roam around the Ballard Locks which was where we had spent time taking Beth and Rusty's wedding photos 6 years before.
Some tickles, a lot of walking and some hats made of leaves, a little bit of boat watching and ending with some favorite books.
Photographing a toddler in a place with lots of things that will grab their interest makes for a very busy session, but a session with some golden moments in it.
I can't wait to see how much Owen has grown the next time I get to capture his cuteness.
