magic two | alexandria, virginia family photographer

Having a two-year-old is like having a blender that you don't have the top for. ~Jerry Seinfeld

 

to me, two seemed like the magic age.  when your kiddos were sweet, cute and cudely but hadn't yet figured out how to be independent little souls that wanted everything there way.

yes, this was my thought before having children.  :)

but in all honesty, this little man embodies everything i thought have a two year old would be like.  such a sweet little man that loves exploring, but knows how to listen to mom and dad.  i realize kids are usually on their best behavior for me, so his mama is probably smiling at my last comment.  but honestly, isn't he just the cutest thing ever?

jennie and dan will have a sweet spot in my heart, since they were one of my first clients when i started my business.  its so amazing to see families grow and dynamics change - which makes photographing families that much more amazing.
