It never fails, every time I meet with Lori and Carter, it’s 100 degrees outside! This day was no exception!
Lori picked a location in Dayton, Ohio that I had never been before. We met at the Cox Arboretum MetroPark. It was really beautiful there, but tricky to find shade since many of their flowers require direct sun. We had a hard time getting Carter’s attention away from the ponds, because there were turtles everywhere. He just kept pointing and saying “turtle turtle.” You can tell that’s what he’s doing in a couple of the photos below.
Carter always makes me work for his photos lol! It’s worth it though, because he’s just the cutest little guy! I always get a ton of compliments after I post his photos. I love all of the candid shots of him! He has a big personality inside that little body!
Lori and I graduated from high school together. We never really kept in touch, aside from social media, until she had Carter and started allowing me to photograph him. Now, we see each other 2-3 times a year. I know that still isn’t much, but it’s always great to see her and catch up! I only have one request Lori, if you have another child let’s shoot for October so it isn’t so hot out lol!
