This little man loved the camera. Either that or he loved the beach. There was so much fun with water and sand. He was just at the toddling stage, so we were able to get a mix of crawling and standing images. I love how it looks like this birthday boy was looking right back through the camera at me. He has such a sweet smile and disposition.

This family had just been through a tough time with the illness and loss of little man’s grandma on his birthday. The family knew they needed to celebrate even though they were mourning.

In loving memory of Grandma Beth, who loved her grandchildren thoroughly.
