Picture This

My Grandson's second birthday was here before I knew it! Since I am the photographer in the family, of course I have to document this special time in his life. Easier said than done!

I had my daughter gather up all of his cute outfits and some props that I thought would hold his interest. He didn't seem to care about the adorable clothing we had ready for him, nor did he care much about any of our unique items we had ready for him to play with.

So, we started with bubbles! Surely, bubbles would entice some smiles and laughter. They actually did the job quite well, however, getting him to look at the camera was another story.

As you can see, he really wasn't interested in giving me what I wanted.
However, I was able to snag this shot!! His sweet face!
Does this really start at age 2?
A few more of my faves from this series.

Next, we moved upstairs. He loves these boxes in my bedroom and I thought it would be so sweet to get a picture of him in one of them! Trying to do that between him climbing in and out of each box, was no easy task!

So I had Mommy lay down with him and I managed to get a couple of very sweet moments between Mommy and baby.

Then we had a little fun!

Next, we brought him outside and this image below is pretty much what I looked at for the next 30 minutes. Him running away from me! Of course, he thought it was the funniest thing ever and took great delight in having his Gigi chase him around the yard with the camera.

Sticks! He loves sticks!
Still, I was able to capture his personality in a few different scenes.

Somewhere in the recesses of my mind, I thought I would actually be able to get a picture of him with his dog. They are both two years old. What was I thinking? This was the only shot where they're actually both in it. Although neither one of them seems to care.

Speaking of dogs, poor Bella got relegated to the house because she was misbehaving as well. As you can see from these photos, she voiced her opinion about it throughout the entire durationĀ of the shoot.

But, at last! After tiring him out (more like me out!), I did manage to get one good shot of him looking at the camera. This is what I was after all day and this made the whole journey worthwhile!

My favorite!

All in all, it was a fun, beautiful and exhausting experience! I wouldn't have it any other way!
