He's 3 and full of smiles! | Wilmington, NC Children's Photographer

Well, he's almost 3 - just a couple more days! My dear friend, Heather, from way back in days of Richlands Elementary, came to the beach, again (2 years ago I photographed her family - and John was just barely walking!) Well, he's full of energy - laughing, smiling, making faces. Basically - a typical 3 yr old. And what a trooper he was because man was it HOT! Portrait session in July are tough for everyone involved - but I couldn't have asked for a more willing subject.

Since they had beach portraits 2 years - we decided to meet at the Arboretum this time. It's such a great place for kids.
By the end of the session - we were all sweating - but John wasn't too hot for some bubbles. I had planned on having him catch the bubbles - but he had much more fun trying to blow bubbles.
I love it when kids play with their parents - I love, love, love this series of portraits. I can feel the love between them all.
Oh, and if a birthday isn't enough to celebrate - we also had a couple other things to celebrate. The day of our session, Friday, was Heather and Chris' 5th wedding anniversary, AND.......
guess what John's pointing to? Congratulations you guys! Can't wait to meet the new little one!
