Family Photos with an 18 month old

A lovely young family had was given a gift of a photo shoot by the generous and wise Grandmother. Besides finding shade on such a glorious day the other challenge was keeping the toddler interested. A ball and dandelions all proved very helpful as well as the  chocolate cookie chasers provided by the parents. It would have been helpful to have an assistant to notice little things … the positioning of the hands, to help with hair flying in the wind, keeping the little guy’s attention. Near the end  I asked a very funky hippy chic passing by our Roberts’s Creek photo shoot to help us out by squeezing the noisy toy. Little Skyler even waved good bye when she continued her walk on the beach.
