Delightful Morning

{Canton Michigan Family Photographer}


Recently, I got to have the pleasure of spending a morning with this sweet, lovely family in their home.  I couldn’t have been happier to follow their sweet young boy around the house and capture him in his element.  Imagining by the window, smiling sweet smiles, playing outside in the outdoors just brimming on the brink of Spring.  And then, their 6-month-old baby – what a doll!  Such a sweet little chunker, full of grins and giggles, and with a wonderful disposition which has blessed his lucky parents.  Mom and Dad were doting, loving parents, so happy to love on their little boys.  The house was decorated so wonderfully, I left my “props” in the car and enjoyed using the natural, beautiful background of their own home.
