Dave, Molly, & Lydia...Family Portraits

This weekend was just beautiful! Perfect for a fun family portrait session. While adorable Lydia was to be the focus of our session, we wanted to get some nice shots with her parents (Dave & Molly) as well. So here is the very handsome family...

Lydia was quite shy when it came to the camera. ;-)

But when you are this cute, it doesn't take much to make a nice picture... :-)

Love the furrowed brow...

I'm predicting Lydia will be a future star of track & field. She shares my son's love of throwing sticks...but check out the form! She means business. Every throw begins with an outstretched aiming arm!

Here is Dave giving Lydia's technique a try...

Lydia helped me take this picture of her parents. Didn't she do a nice job!?

Then when we found a big open grassy area...Lydia was really ready to have some fun! First she wanted her parents to race to her. On your mark, get set, go!

Then Lydia wanted to race her dad...

Now that was fun! I bet Lydia crashed out for quite a nap/night's rest after all of that playing around. Thank you Dave, Molly, and Lydia - I had a wonderful time. You guys are such an awesome family - you really know how to have fun and enjoy each other. :-)
