If you’re a mom, chances are you’ve got a million photos in your phone of your kiddos. And chances are, about a million more of dad and the kids together. But what about you?? You’re usually the one capturing those beautiful moments, and there aren’t a ton of pictures of you with your little peanut!

That was exactly the case with this Brentwood family, and one of the biggest priorities of the day was to capture some amazing portraits of mom with her kiddos. And boy, did we!

At first, I was a little unsure of how the session was going to go. These two rambunctious toddlers wanted to do everything BUT take pictures, and they wanted to go everywhere where the light wasn’t quite right!

The thing is, NO two, three or four year old wants to be told what to do. So, we just went with it. They certainly kept us on our toes, and lots of trickery was needed to entertain these two little love bugs! And you know, something magical happens when you stop trying to force an outcome, and just let kids be kids!

We all had so much fun chasing these two around our favorite Brentwood Park, Temescal Canyon, and the results were simply stunning.
