Reese – 3 years


This little guy was completely and totally enamored with ALL that is boy.  He was a tall, thick, strong as can be little man with a smile that lights up his eyes…and his momma.

reese_0288He wanted nothing to do with my camera so it was all I could do to get a shot of anything but his behind.  HA!  BUT, once we started playing games it was all over.  I was hearing giggles and seeing lots of grins.

Shooting at the Farmer’s Market downtown was great since it’s all shutdown on Mondays.  We had the whole place to ourselves.  Reese ran us all over and then back…more than once.  Luckily, he brought along his Nana and Papa to help wrangle him in.  He had such a cool relationship with both of them that was obvious in front of my lens.  It’s amazing what a camera can pick up.  He’ll remember these photos for a long time to come.

reese_0302Told ya.  All boy.  I love how he bites his bottom lip.

reese_0003rockSee what I mean?  Rocks, dirt clots, you name it and he was finding it.  There was even a stick in the mix.

jumpHe wasn’t afraid of anything, either.  I love how he jumped from that post as soon as Papa told him.  From standing to flying through the air into Papa’s arms.  He was loving it!

Speaking of air…

tossWhew!  Do you see that HUGE grin on his face?  Not a care in the world.

reese_0029Nana got in on the action, too.  Smooch smooch…

redand a tickle fight.  That one makes ME smile.

tackleAnyone have a guess as to how I got him to sit still for the cool close-ups?

Well, now you know why I love my iPhone.  I couldn’t live without it and that’s the truth!

reese_0261AND, the last shot of the day…


All that running around kept us so busy we didn’t have time to find a restroom.  Better luck next time. :)

    TOO funny, those last two shots. I don’t have boys but I’ve heard that the life of a boy. Love that shot of his sweet eye lashes.
