My family and I recently had a short road trip to Ottawa to visit our friend Amy and her family, including their 1 year old baby Lukas. We all couldn't get enough of him and his awesome personality. Being a professional photographer I always carry some sort of camera with me, and I knew I would be visiting with a couple different families throughout our trip so I decided to do a little photo session with Lukas.
My wife Anne and I took him outside and let him crawl around, sit by himself and a variety of other poses. He was so easy going and was essentially smiling or making faces the entire time. We only spent about 15 minutes with him outside, but the photos below just go to show you, that it doesn't take much to get some really candid photos if you know what you are doing and you work fast.
I could have easily spent another hour with him outside taking photos, but we didn't want to take steal him away for too long. Plus, I think it was about time for his meal if I remember correctly. If I learned one thing about Lukas over the few days that we were there, it's that he loves to eat, anything, as you can see from the last photo I included below.
