Castillo {family portraits}

Jennifer contacted a few months back wanting to do a mother son session.  When we booked the date, just before Christmas, her, her husband and her son all showed up.  It was awesome because we were able to sneak a couple of family pictures in with their mother/son shoot.  

As big as this world is, I love when it brings us back to reality and reminds us just how small it can feel sometime.  Jennifer and her husband both service in the Military, though we have never met, she found me through a "Next Door" website, when we got to talking she lived within a few blocks of some of my closest friends and found out shes from close to the small town my cousins now live in.  On top of that, we were going to be there the same time over New Years.  I love when little stories like this get to cross our paths and then develop into fun relationships and being able to document their family as they grow up.  

Their son was the sweetest, and I have to say, one of the best kids to actually photograph.  He even let me hold his airplane willingly so I could get the shot.  It was so cute, towards the end of the session, his mom had promised once we were done we would get his balloon.  He was so excited, so of course we had to take a few candid's of him with his balloon.  

Castillo family, first and foremost, thank you for your service to our country and for letting me get to see a little into your lives together, and to capture the sweetness of you and your son.
