The Brynilsden Family, Part 2 // Fort Monroe Family Photographer

I absolutely love getting to know people, and I'm so glad to have met Dianne and her family. Not only do I get to spend time with them, I get to do so four times over the course of this year as we chronicle little Oliver (and Ethan's!) growth throughout his first year of life.

After a session during the midst of the stormy season here that got rained out, we decided to change things up a little and schedule an early morning session on the fields and beach of Fort Monroe in Hampton. Sometimes kids are the most amiable in the mornings, so we thought it would work perfectly...and it did! Oliver was full of smiles the whole time, and Ethan's favorite part was playing with bubbles when we headed down to the beach.

These little guys are growing so quickly (click here see their first session just a few months ago!) and I can't wait to catch up with them again in September to see where they go next!

Ethan is definitely the more active of the two, so dad got some playtime in :)

Their family time at the beach was precious. Ethan occupied himself with bubbles and the water, and Oliver got to stick his toes in the sand.
