Photographing families can be tough, especially with young children who are just starting to develop their own ideas and opinions about the world. This little rambunctious one had the energy of a two year old puppy and a smile that could melt your heart. However he (like many other 2 year olds) had a very strong opinion that he didn't want his picture taken. We ditched the traditional family photo idea and decided to just play. He loved to be tossed and twirled and anything that involved him being upside down. It's too bad Albuquerque doesn't have a circus school because in San Diego, I'd know just where to send him! In the end we got some really cute shots that reflect the love this family has and how tender their relationships are with each other.
