A new day job has kept us busy for most of the long hiatus, and photography has taken a bit of a back seat. For most part, this was the reason too. Meet my wife during the anticipation of the latest addition in our family. Photos were taken October 2012.
With winter hopefully ending soon, one of the most anticipated activities in this cold and often gloomy North East city is the annual Mardi Gras parade. It may be a few (or more) notches down on the craziness scale compared to the original Mardi Gras down south, but it is far more family friendly. It’s great to see the colorful display of characters in the parade, not to mention the fun gathering of the Vermont populace in a party mode.
At 45 degrees F, it is definitely a little more bearable to hang out to watch the entire parade this year. Of course I’ll be happy to have weather beyond freezing point nowadays.
The autumn afternoon we have spent with these two cutie pies was immensely enjoyable. They were both relaxed and comfortable and in their natural element.
Sophie is your feisty two-year-old whose range of emotions are as vast and diverse as the colors of the rainbow. This little princess is eager to make friends and obviously has the warmest, cutest smile. As with any 2-year-old, the limited vocabulary makes it a little bit challenging, but her charming personality and aura could quickly warm anybody over.
Ethan, on the other hand, is Sophie’s complete opposite. Of course, he is only 4-month-old (at the time of this shoot) and barely does anything but sleep, eat, smile and look adorable. Even so, it appears that this little man has a calm and composed temperament…for now at least.
