There is no replacement for a natural smile and a candid, happy moment. The Bavelis boys made it so easy to capture those authentic shots. After meeting at the Bonphotage studio and playing with balloons and Christmas tree ornaments, Theo, Joanne, their two adorable boys and I headed over to Olive park. The children took turns jumping from one step to the next and giving each other sweet hugs for the camera in between. This family was just such a joy to have in front of my lens. Here are just a few of my favorites from their session. Enjoy.
