Our day in the city began at the local coffee shop, afterwards we wound our way up to the park and then trekked over to the apartment for some playtime, lunch and finally, nap time. The scheduled life of a toddler is a wonderful thing - I'm envious as I write this! I've said it before and I'll say it again, these are the kind of photos that will transport you back in time the way posed photos cannot. As the years pass and you take out photos like these, you will feel many things, but regret won't be one of them. You were there, completely there. You preserved precious, simple moments of a life filled with love and hope. Give this gift to yourself and your children. As the photographer I realize it sounds self-serving to say it's worth it, but it is. It is worth every penny.
