Lauren wanted to give her husband Mike a nice present for Fathers day but was in the Jacksonville area away from home in Alabama. I had shot their wedding years ago and they have come to me for family portraits since Ava (now 2 1/2) was born. Photographing an active toddler and baby is always a challenge. Ava did not want to go into the water or too far from her mom and grandma so I shot twice as many natural portraits as she moved so quickly in hopes to get a natural smile. Grandma helped a lot in getting the kids to smile.
