Durham Region Children’s Photography – From 2 – 5

A few years ago I met the cutest little cherub cheeked little boy named Alex. He was two, he was adorable, he was insanely well behaved and best of all he though I was HILARIOUS. *proof below 😉

Alex enrolled in what was then called the “Big Steps Program” which included a session each year until he was 5. At the time is felt like 5 was so far away… but here we are and I’m sure his parents will confirm that it flew by.

Between the bear, the “bird” aka my feather duster tickle toy and the fish – he was full of smiles!

The next session was done at 2.5 – even just in 6 months look at the difference!!

Then 3… growing up fast. (Still full of smiles and incredibly easy to work with though. If every child in the durham region was this easy to work with I would have a REALLY easy job 😉 )

Then 4… back to loving on his bear… Looks like the bear shrunk over the years though 😛

And finally now… 5 years old. Not much baby chub left, now a big brother and still just as sweet as ever. You are one stellar kid Alex!

I have  a few to share in a little while of his 5 year old session, along with his adorable brother too! Just wanted to dedicate this post to a  few favourites over the years since it’s so much fun to see the growth over the year. Everyone says it over and over but it is so true – you have a baby, you blink, and suddenly you have a child. (or children!)  So take pictures, take lots and lots and lots of pictures!
