I met this cute family through a friend of a friend. Their little girl had just turned 2 and they wanted some portraits of her and them as a family! They love water, Kelly’s island, and had a nautical theme for her birthday! I picked a favorite spot of mine down by the city and Lake Erie. It has grass and trees, water and sand, boats, and amazing scenery! It is a great place to hang out with friends and family, and has everything that is great about our city!! They were such an adorable family and my goal for the day was to make her smile!! She was shy, which is normal for any little kid at her age, and with a stranger in your face with a camera!! I think we got some great family shots, and I got to see her smile, as well as capturing the candidness of the day!
