For the third year in a row I got to meet up with sweet M and her parents to photograph them. [ 2014 First Birthday 2013 Family Session ]. M has grown up so much over the last few years and it has been a blast every time I see her! At our session she played in the puddles by the "castle" at Leif Erickson Park and threw rocks into Lake Superior. She had a lot of funny faces stored up for us, she made us work for the sweet smiles (although I enjoy funny faces just as much as sweet smiles!). Had to bust out some fun toys to play around with on top of my lens to be interesting enough to look at (can't blame her, there are so many interesting things to look at by North Shore!) but at the end of the session, we got a fun mix of some posed shots and lots of fun candid shots as well.. I like a little of both at my sessions so it was a great time and now I have a lot of photos from the shoot that I love to share in the blog post!
