I photographed Anita and Derek's engagement photos a few years ago, and we had such fun together!
So it was wonderful to see them again, with a new member of their family, beautiful sixteen month old Paloma.
Isn't she adorable and so independent? The three of them have fun exploring the world together. I love how a toddler reminds you just how fascinating the simplest things can be.
She has this great, hilarious walk:
And I realized that both she and Mateus (who are at the same age) are learning through imitation - I kept wondering why they were squatting down until I realized that I was doing it to be able to photograph them on their level - and they wanted to emulate my posture. Smarties!
I love this urban-forest shot of their happy family:
And daddy helping with those stairs - though half of the time she wanted to do it herself.
You can see that there is a LOT of love in their little family!
