I can’t imagine a more appropriate session for Halloween weekend. When else can a family go from this…..to this in the course of an hour?

Could he get any cuter!?

I love it when parents aren’t opposed to plopping their kid in the sand for a photo op. I know it’s not the most desirable place to put your baby at the beginning of a photo session…but the results were adorable.

I love everything about these two pictures.

The expressions.

The crazy hair.

I hope you guys scored lots of candy on Sunday with these fun costumes.

This is my favorite type of family picture.

Why, you ask?

Because 20 years from now when their son looks back on this moment he will NOT see a posed photo or fake smile – he will see his parents engaged and loving him fully while they play with the greatest toy ever….a stick.

Help this family earn a free print to hang on their walls.

Leave a comment with your well wishes, your favorite pic, or just to let this fun family know you’re thinking of them.

  • leah villarrealNovember 5, 2010 - 11:39 am

    Yay! I love the pics. especially the one of Cal with all the face paint on sitting by himself saying “what the heck just hapened here”? His blue eyes are to die for. You guys look great. Mike is such a proud pop. Taylor, I want to see more of you.

    Two teef: Keeping your parents fit is a big responsibility. Make sure they chase you at least 3 times a day. When you mess with Daddy’s guitar, your fingers have to be below the capo. Practice, practice, practice!
