April is one of my favorite friends, though the last time I saw her she was pregnant with her first child! Â Her maternity session remains one of my favorites. Â It was so much fun to see her and her husband (Hi, Dave!) again and meet their two adorable boys.
L started off his morning with some cartoons. Â Who doesn’t enjoy a good zoning-out every once in a while??
I really love these next two images :).
It also happened to be this little guy’s first birthday! Â He was obviously far more interested in me than his breakfast.
Playing in curtains will never get old, little buddy. Â Don’t let anyone tell you it will! Â Funny side-note, L and I were playing together and hid in these curtains for a good 10 or so minutes before April realized that we were being really quiet and came looking for us. Â She couldn’t believe he stayed so quiet and hidden for so long!
R wanted to do everything his big bro did! Â I adore him.
The night before the session April started spray-painting a wall in their house with this blackboard paint…only to discover that it was also coating the entire living room with a fine mist of (we’re certain) cancer-causing black dust. Â Only one can got used up, just enough for individual portraits, but we both think it was totally worth it.
And then we were off to the Getty!
We got R a cupcake for his first birthday and he attacked that thing with the ferocity of a velociraptor. Â As you can see.
That was a Sprinkles cupcake, kiddo. Â It’s all downhill from here.
I think L equally enjoyed his ice cream.
This is one of my favorites. Â Love this kid!
We also made a little trip to the beach.
I don’t know how he got so sandy so quickly, but I kind of love it.
I can’t wait until my next trip out to see you guys! Â Hopefully we won’t wait another 4 years :). Â Love you!!
