2 year portraits/Father's Day gift for Daddy!

My friend, Erika, offered photo shoots with her sister-in-law, Monica, right around Zach's second birthday. I figured it would be a great opportunity to get some awesome photos taken at a great price! I decided to make it a surprise for Tim, sort of a Father's Day gift since he wasn't home to get an actual gift at the time. We decided to head out to a local playground right by the beach fondly known as "The Pirate Park." The play structure is a pirate ship and Zach has a blast every time we go. I wish I could say that it was a beautiful Southern California Day but alas, this is the CA coast and it was gloomy and gray. We didn't let that bother us and Monica took such great shots, you wouldn't even know it was so yucky. Zach is so much fun and I spent the entire time soaking up his cuteness. He loves to play so it was great to get so many shots of him smiling, this is who he is, happy, crazy, and fun, something very hard to capture in a studio.


Enjoy the pics!

...and oh, aren't those plaid overalls just about the cutest thing you have ever seen?

SWIMMING!

I took Zach to a Parent and Tots swim class for 2 weeks and he had so much fun! After the first week we tried the life vest on him and he loved it. He was so excited to be able to let go of me and 'swim.' Here is a video of him swimming from July 4th when we took Daddy to show off Zach's swimming skills. =)

Home at Last!

Zach and I picked up Tim at LAX this morning! We are enjoying getting to spend time together again but wanted to post these for everyone to enjoy.


We're ready!


Waiting patiently.


A little shy at first...

Finally, a big hug!
