On Wednesday morning I met up with Todd, Danielle, Oliver, Addison and Bo for a morning of family photography fun at Bellevue Park. Shooting young kids is always a fun challenge and Oliver didn’t disappoint. One thing I did learn though is that you can suggest any random thing for a two year old to do and they will do it; such as putting a stick in their mouth to mimic their dog. It made for a great picture which you’ll see below however Oliver found that the stick did in fact taste good and kept it in his mouth for the next ten minutes. Because of this my family shoots now come with a disclaimer:
Curt O’Neil: he’ll teach your children things you really don’t want them to be doing on a daily basis.
Todd is a big Superman fan, thus Oliver is a Superman fan as well. Near the end of the shoot they found the nearest phone booth (okay it was beside a tree) and put on their Superman shirts. This transformed Oliver into a flexing, eye-daggering, attitude tossing man of steal. And it was simply awesome.
Danielle and Todd thanks for the great morning, it was great to get to know you and your children.
