Twice Around the Sun Photo Shoot

Hi everyone!

Since I’m a proud mom like the rest of  you, I couldn’t resist sharing photos from a quick 25 minute photo shoot I did of my son for his 2nd birthday. Today is his actual birthday, but we did the Twice Around the Sun photo shoot yesterday at Kiwanis Park in Hampstead. It was muggy and overcast all day but as long as there was no rain we were going to do it! We got attacked by mosquitos and left with our shoes covered in mud, but the photos really captured his personality in this super fun (albeit, challenging) age. He’s changing so much everyday, I know I’ll look back on these photos soon and get all nostalgic over these days and his sweet baby face.

Hats off to all the kiddos out there turning two this month, and all the moms and dads for doing a great job!
