Families with young children make me happy. I’m not sure if it’s because I myself have young kids and I can relate wholly with their experience as it is at that point in life. Maybe it’s because I remember when I was young and how beautiful and special it is to grow up loving all those around you. I just love photographing beautiful little families such as the one below. They were indeed delightful – two loving parents matched with two beautifully loved children.

Little Miss Tayla is growing by the day. I can’t believe how much she looks and acts like a real little girl – and by that, I don’t mean I thought she looked and acted like a boy, not at all. See, the last two occasions I’ve had the opportunity to photograph this family (when Tayla was all but a newborn and then again at 11 months) she was such a little baby. Now she’s a real little girl. It was obvious by the way she walked and swung those little arms side by side; the way she pursed her lips in a cheeky little grin; and the way she held and cared for her baby ever so.
I really love to watch children grow through my lens. It’s a privilege and when I’m editing sessions I’ll often pull up some portraits form sessions past and compare how far they’ve come. Miss Tayla has come far. She is the sweetest thing.
We also had the pleasure of the company of Tayla’s big twin cousins who wanted in on the action too.
