My camera bag was feeling awfully small as I arrived at Forza in downtown Puyallup.  Bulging with oversized lollipops (that my kids were drooling over!) and bubbles I mentally prepared myself for a family (with an almost two year old) that I had never photographed before.  As a parent, my expectations are totally realistic and although I’m an optimist, I prepare myself for the worst with toddlers (I’m also a realist!)  I have been there with two toddlers 19 months apart- yeah, you know that screaming child in the Target aisle in 2004?  Yeah, that was probably my kid.  I totally get that, and sometimes all you can do is bide your time for 7:30 when the lights go out.  So, although my kids are older now, I totally sympathise with parents of toddlers!  But the Saturday morning I met with the Leskes, all of my preparations were for nothing!  Jeremiah & Alex hammed it up and were as sweet as sugar for our session!  And parents, yes I did ask for permission before I pulled those monster suckers out!

So here is one of the sweetest & most adorable families I have ever photographed.  And if you are looking for a home, check out their sites here & here.  I would definitely buy a home from them if I was looking!

Thank you Sarah & Don for allowing me to capture your beautiful boys!  Can I call them beautiful?  Because they really are!  It was such a privilege and I had so much fun with your family!

Readers beware, serious cuteness ahead…




[…] There are times in your life when you can feel like it is the first day of school all over again.  “Will they like me?  Will I know anyone?  Do I look as nervous as I feel?”  I had one of those moments when we signed our kiddos up for soccer last fall.  I showed up to the field where there were about 50 kids and sadly I did not know one parent.  And there I was alone in a sea of parents…until a cute blonde sitting close by introduced herself.  And from there on, three practices a week I had a friendly face to look forward to seeing and the practices & games (all three of them a week!) flew by.  So, meet one of the sweetest people I have ever met, Staci, along with her husband Ben and adorable little kiddos.  And if Ben looks familiar, it’s probably because I photographed his brother’s family a few months ago (check out their cute fam here.)

Thank you for sharing. It has been said that a picture says a thousand words, how true. The quality of a picture says a thousand words about the artist who took them also…

Kind regards,
Don Sr.
