Seattle Children's Milestone Photographer - Terrific Two Milestone Session

Two. The tricky age that has so many bad connotations to it.

I must say, I may be crazy but I LOVE TWO! I think two year old's have so much personality and they are so unfiltered still with their emotions making it so fun to photograph them. 

I love being able to see the wonder and their curiosity in their eyes! By the way, isn't this sweet girl's eyes just magical?!!!!

When I first met this sweet girl it was a year ago when we were photographing her Mama's maternity session and she was becoming a big sister!! 

I love being able to see families grow, and it is a huge part of why I am a photographer. I love staying connected with families and watching kids reach milestones.

One thing I've learned over the years with my own children and as a Seattle milestone photographer, is it is best to keep things short & sweet. 

Avoid too many props. Avoid too much chaos. Avoid just simply too much.

I shot this series within 10 minutes. And the first 5 minutes consisted of me just talking with her, and having my camera at my side. I kept my conversation light and fun. Talking about what they saw on the car ride to the studio? Any fun animals or cars that made silly noises? 

And then I let her talk, kept a high shutter speed and shot through our conversation about silly sounds and special animals...

I was able to capture the giggles, and still able to get her sweet innocent baby face that will soon be gone after these fleeting toddler years...

{ I found this vintage apron dress at a local shop in Tacoma. I always love when I find vintage pieces that are well taken care of. It became the perfect outfit for this session!! This piece is still in our studio wardrobe for borrow during your children's milestone session! }

As a Seattle Children's Milestone Photographer, I get quite a few inquiries for younger milestone sessions, as those 6 month and 12 month baby milestones go by so quickly. Before you know it, you blink and they are crawling around and pulling themselves up, and then quickly walking around. Though the milestone's as our children get farther apart, they are so worth documenting. And I have been lucky enough to capture these boy's milestones for the past couple of years, and I must say, when their Mom emailed me, I did get a little teary eyed at the fact that they are growing up so fast....

Every session I do, includes a little pre-consultation to go over the goals for the photography session. This session was intended to mainly document little brother's two year old milestone, and have some images of the two brother's interacting....

But, when their Mom reminded me the oldest was turning 5, and heading off to kindergarten, my heart broke. My children are similar ages of these two...and I just wish sometimes, I could stop time...I wish that they could just stay little forever. With a head FULL of imagination, and unfiltered eyes to see the world. I wanted them to remember this time forever as it truly is, so magical...

So, my goal in their milestone session, was to not only capture the connection between the two boys, but to give Mom and Dad the magic of their childhood in these images to keep forever...

As I do with most of my milestone photography sessions, we ran and played. We giggled and shared stories. We imagined we were going somewhere far away. But, this one. This one, tugged at my heart strings and kept me a tad longer....

And, I loved every second of it. For this is their story....

Brotherhood. Love. Friendship. And a touch of Magic.
