Manny's session

Manny's session
I've known Manny's dad for awhile now and I was absolutely honored when he asked if I would do some family photographs for him. I had met Manny once before, but we didn't get to know each other nearly as much as we did at the shoot. He is a true gem! Such a good heart and what a fun spirited child he is! Needless to say we had a BLAST! Here are a few of their photographs ...
If this post had sound, you would hear "LEEEEEESA! Look! I'm UP-EM-SIDE DOWN!!!" - Yes, he calls me LEEEEESA and no I don't mind at all.

I was down in this weird crouch trying to get a 'low' photo of Manny ... and here he is mimicking me. It cracked me up!
This is what I call the 'parent stance' ... LOL!!!!

Then we went to play in some leaves ... I L-O-V-E the sheer joy on Manny's face! Oh yeah ... and the leaf in his hair :)
and it was VERY soon after this next photo that I was covered in leaves ....
See?
then he found a flower ...
and needed to show me ....
and I love this expression!!!
We found some great light ...
the light was even good on his cute little shoes ...
Manny being .... well, 'Manny'! - he's such a character :)
Remember childhood? When your dad could scoop you up into his arms and swing you in the air, your feet flailing? Or toss you up in the air and then catch you safely in his arms all the while laughing and being covered in kisses? Well, this photo reminds me of all of that - just being carefree and being a KID!

another shot of our great light ...

Manny jumping up in the air with his 'NayNay' in his arms!

Manny, I think you and I could be BFF :)

I had such fun playing with you and being tackled and playing in the leaves and running around and picking a flower (illegally) and jumping and rolling and all of those 'kid things' :) Thanks for bringing Daddy and Poppa along for our play date!
